This unit combines lectures, case based tutorials and work integrated learning. It is a co-requisite of 9071. Students begin to develop an advanced understanding of occupation, the core domain of occupational therapy, and occupational therapy values, theories, perspectives, models and processes which they can apply in practice. Students gain specialised skills in occupation analysis and develop insight of the diverse settings in which the broad scope of occupational therapy is practised.

This unit will be co-taught with Foundations of Occupational Therapy, 10300.

Learning Outcomes

On the successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Synthesise information gathered from a comprehensive occupation analysis and reflect on contextual aspects of the analysis;

2. Justify the rationale for adopting an occupation-focus in practice by drawing upon recent and relevant theory, research and literature; and

3. Demonstrate appropriate professional behaviours, language and attitudes in a supervised practice setting.
