OCT5OTF

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will explore the theoretical foundations of occupational therapy, recognising the relationship between occupational participation, health and well-being. Human occupation will be examined from a life span perspective, integrating key concepts of the Model of Human Occupation (Kilhefner, 2008) and occupational science. Skills in occupational analysis, person-centred intentional communication and facilitating group occupational experiences will be developed and applied. Knowledge of research principles and methods in occupational therapy will be applied to understanding how the environment can be modified to enable change, using the process of evidence based practice.
