Occupational therapy is a dynamic and changing profession. Contemporary competencies change across time and across international boundaries, with professional boundaries being impacted by the local evolution of the profession in response to local needs, challenges, and opportunities. In this subject, you will develop an understanding of contemporary and international practice issues and take part in workshops to prepare you for international and emerging areas of practice. You will take part in a project-based practice education experience in an immersive role-emerging area of occupational therapy practice.
