The aim of this unit is to introduce the students to the common tools occupational therapists use when working with individuals. These include basic assessments and interventions related to self-care, productivity and leisure. Through a case based format, students will learn how impairments in body structure and function influence occupational performance and participation. Students will have an opportunity to adopt an occupational perspective to the management of these impairments.
This unit is co-taught with 9071 Occupational Therapy Toolbox 1 PG.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Understand the role of the occupational therapist in the assessment and provision of occupational therapy services for people with impairments;
2. Understand the physiological mechanisms underpinning impairments of some neurological conditions;
3. Exercise competent clinical reasoning in the provision of occupational therapy services to people with impairments; and
4. Apply essential practice education skills (e.g. observation, communication, documentation, manual handling and infection control).
