An extended fieldwork placement and intensive on-campus study provides students with the opportunity to consolidate, apply, and further develop their knowledge of occupational therapy practice, with a focus on graduate capabilities. Enabling participation lies at the core of all occupational therapy practice and students will have the opportunity to implement, monitor, and evaluate a range of strategies for an agreed caseload. As members of different interdisciplinary teams, students will have opportunities to engage in formal and informal inter-professional learning. This unit enables students to continue to build on learning gained through OCCP5237, OCCP5238 and OCCP5239 through the participation in a seven-week, supervised 36hr/week placement in a professional service setting.
8 x 2 hour workshops (intensive mode)
In-class reading responses (60%), 2-hr written examination (40%), Fieldwork assessment (Pass/Fail). Students must pass the practical work component of this unit as assessed on the fieldwork assessment in order to gain a pass for the unit.
This unit of study includes a work integrated learning placement. Students must be aware of and complete all pre-placement requirements.
