Credit points: 30

This subject addresses La Trobe's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Essential. Innovation and Entrepreneurship is about using your creativity to generate new ideas, understand and solve complex problems and thrive in a fast-changing world.

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. This subject addresses La Trobe's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Essential. Innovation and Entrepreneurship entails developing the ability to tackle problems creatively, generating new ideas, taking calculated risks and creating change to achieve ambitions - now and in the future.
