||Sch Public Health,Trop Medicine&Rehabilitation Sc (pre 2015)
Available to level 2 Occupational Therapy, Occupational Therapy IHCAP and Occupational
Therapy Honours students.
This subject provides students with an appreciation of the unique role of Occupational
Therapy in advocating and ensuring occupational performance for all clients across
the lifespan and across disabilities. Connections between occupation and wellbeing
will be explored by applying theory to practice in different contexts. Students will
complete a practical experience within a community organisation where they will facilitate
and evaluate occupational opportunities with clients. The focus of this subject will
include mental health, physical rehab, aged care, children, disability services, and
health promotion intervention, where occupational performance effects well-being.
This subject will build on clinical reasoning skills and provide opportunities for
students to reflect on decisions and practice skills.
- apply theoretical knowledge to develop interventions that promote occupational performance
and quality of life;
- implement group and individual occupation based interventions;
- demonstrate effective clinical reasoning and evidence based practice in relation to
specified client groups;
- demonstrate effective independent learning and group-work skills;
- conduct and analyse occupational profiles and evaluate occupational performance across
age ranges in order to determine client-centred goals for group interventions.
