Occupational Therapy Practice 2 CXA718

Introduction

This professional experience placement unit further explores concepts associated with occupation and extends student's ability to determine an occupational evaluation and intervention plan to facilitate occupation using the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework and key theoretical approaches to practice. Relevant frameworks, including the International Classification of Functioning (ICF) are examined and evaluated. Students draw on the concepts and principles of occupational science and apply an evidence-based approach to client centred assessment including therapeutic interviewing, client counselling, occupational performance analysis, and advanced motor skill assessment and intervention (including the utilisation of assistive technology) to assist people to meaningfully participate in life.
