About this Unit
The productivity role is a key aspect of adult life for most people. Occupational therapists play a major role in assisting clients who have had their productivity role affected in some way. This unit explores the importance of productivity for adults, in particular those engaged in paid employment. The focus of this unit is the rehabilitation of the injured worker within the context of the work health and safety legislation and the WorkCover case management system. In addition, this unit will explore vocational counselling and rehabilitation for clients with psychosocial, cognitive and physical disabilities.
