This unit includes an extended fieldwork placement and on-campus workshops to provide students with an opportunity to consolidate, apply and extend their knowledge of occupational therapy practice, with a focus on the range of competencies identified by OT Board of Australia needed to become a novice practitioner. This final fieldwork placement experience is focused on students developing independence and autonomy demonstrating the ability to manage a caseload approximating up to 80% of that expected of a new graduate in that specific position.
