Evaluation in Professional Practice - OCCP4089

Year - 2018

Working as a professional requires a high degree of autonomy, a dedication to life-long learning, a capacity to work in partnership with others, and an ability to reflect on the quality of one's practice and service delivery. This unit of study emphasises the role of evaluation and outcome measurment as a component of evidence-informed occupational therapy practice. Students will learn how to evaluate the process and outcomes of services, how to select, appraise, and apply outcome measurement in a practice context when evaluating outcomes of occupational therapy services. Students will develop skills for designing and disseminating program evaluation plans to contribute to monitoring, and evaluation for practice improvement.
