OT4004 - Advancing Professional Practice
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Healthcare Sciences
This modular subject will equip students with knowledge and skills to support the
advancement of their clinical practice and professional careers. This subject will
foster professional development relevant to a variety of specialist and emerging practice
domains. The learning activities within the subject will enable in-depth critical
examination of the complexities of contemporary and future occupational therapy clinical
practice. All students will undertake a core module focusing on the development of
professional growth, resilience and employability within contemporary and emerging
practice contexts. As part of this, students will engage in a process of targeted
reflection in relation to their personal and professional strengths as well as areas
for further development. This reflective process will be later drawn on in a series
of practice area specific elective modules in order to enable students to situate,
personalise and enrich their professional development.
- consolidate their sense of professional identity and resilience as required to articulate
and negotiate the occupational therapy role within evolving health care context;
- develop advanced knowledge and skills to support the effective engagement in supervision,
mentorship and other professional support processes;
- critically evaluate and apply advanced occupational therapy concepts across a range
of professional service delivery sectors;
- synthesise and reframe knowledge of occupational therapy philosophy and practice in
examining the potential occupational therapy role within non-traditional and emerging
practice areas in rural, remote and tropical contexts;
- evaluate personal and professional competencies and devise individualised strategies
to plan future professional growth.
