Disability Management - REHB5922

Year - 2018

The unit of study covers the history, models, theory, practice and evidence of Disability Management (DM). Disability management is systemic in nature; the UoS will reflect this in its dual consideration of service and management perspectives. Teacher/student activity is embedded in project based learning. Students work in small groups to plan and document a project designed to advance the cause of good and evidence based practices in DM. Lectures and on-line self-directed learning will be concentrated in the early weeks in preparation for the project. Project will require self-directed work between sessions, and active group work in class settings. In this way, students will develop an understanding of the technical ideal, the pragmatically real, and the evolution of DM in Australia. The project will culminate with a portfolio product comprised of group and individual contributions.
