Occupational therapy is a dynamic and changing profession. Contemporary competencies change across time and across international boundaries, with professional boundaries being impacted by 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 intensive workshops to prepare you for international and emerging areas of practice. In the final weeks of the subject you will take part in an 8-day supervised international placement and study tour. For students who are unable to complete the international placement, you will complete 64 hours of supervised case-based learning.
