EVIDENCE REVIEW IN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

OCT5ERA

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will develop advanced skills in searching, appraising and integrating research evidence into practice. Working in small groups you will evaluate the rigour of a body of research evidence available to answer a contemporary and important question relating to the practice of occupational therapy. After selection and appraisal, rigorous research evidence will be integrated with current clinical knowledge/expertise and contextual factors. You will then develop, articulate and justify, through written and verbal presentations, evidence- based occupational therapy practice recommendations that identify where changes in practice have or must occur in response to new knowledge. In this subject you will have the opportunity to continue to develop and demonstrate effective communication and collaboration, as well as investigative and critical thinking skills.
