10 cp Prerequisites: OTHY600 Advanced Clinical Reasoning for Occupational Therapists in Aged and Neurological Rehabilitation, HLSC630 Aged and Neurological Disorders 1: Holistic Management Teaching Organisation: 150 hours of focused learning.
Occupational therapists working in rehabilitation with older adults and individuals with neurological disorders require advanced knowledge of environmental interventions in order to optimise access and enhance capacity for occupational performance in the home, within the work setting and during leisure pursuits. OTHY602 offers post graduate students the opportunity to update and enhance theoretical knowledge, and explore evidence for optimal occupational therapy practice in environmental modifications. This unit aims to encourage students to further develop, critically appraise and apply enhanced knowledge and skills associated with occupational rehabilitation techniques in practice, with the purpose of increasing clients' safety, capacity to participate, and independence within the home, community and workplace.
