About this Unit
In this unit students will understand how the environment not only provides a context for the activities people choose to engage in, but also how well they can complete them. Students will learn how the social, cultural, physical and institutional environments that they live in can influence health and well-being, provide structures for social inclusion or exclusion, and enable or limit people to participate in everyday activities. Using an occupational lens, students will gain skills in analysing environmental barriers to occupational performance and modifying environments to increase participation.
