OCTY71-110: Occupational Therapy: Independence and Participation

Description

In this subject you will explore the role of occupational therapy in enabling independence and participation. There will be an emphasis on independence in self-care and activities of daily living to function in the home environment, as well as focussed attention on selected activities (including transport, sex and sexuality, and sleep) that underpin participation. At the end of the semester you will conduct a community presentation, where you will demonstrate group education and facilitation skills in the context of promoting independence and participation.
