About this Unit
This unit will allow students to consolidate academic knowledge and practice skills in preparation for becoming a competent beginning practitioner. Students will be expected to actively participate in assessment, analysis, goal setting, intervention and evaluation under the supervision of an occupational therapist. Students will complete practice hours in accordance with World Federation of Occupational Therapy accreditation guidelines. Career development workshops will be conducted to prepare students for entry into the profession of occupational therapy. In addition, honours students will examine their role as beginning practitioner researchers during their placement and the role of research in underpinning clinical decisions.
