MACRO STRATEGIES FOR ADVANCED PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE

OCT5MSP

2014

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

In this subject, learners will shift their view beyond the occupational challenges facing individuals, to consider the ways in which occupational therapists enable change at the level of the service/organisation, community or population. This is referred to as macro level practice. Learners will focus on gaining knowledge and skills required for their impending role as health practitioners in a rapidly changing health and social policy context. The subject is comprised of three key themes: health promotion and prevention, project management and preparation for contemporary practice. Learners will apply, critique and reflect upon major subject themes through appraising other projects and planning and conducting their own project.
