This unit will introduce students to the profession of occupational therapy. Students will learn the broad contexts in which occupational therapists work and how occupational therapy acts at an individual, community and population level. Students will be introduced to basic professional practices in communication, life long learning and ethical, professional and academic behaviour.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Outline key characteristics of occupational therapy and the underpinning concepts of occupational science;
2. Identify the key philosophical principles of occupational therapy and demonstrate how this can be enacted in occupational therapy practice; and
3. Describe a variety of settings occupational therapists can work in, within Australian society and the Australian health care system.
