10 cp Prerequisites Completion of 80 cp coursework units towards Master of Rehabilitation (Occupational Therapy) Teaching Organisation 150 hours of focused learning.
This unit provides students with the opportunity to update and enhance theoretical knowledge and clinical skills to a Master’s level in order to enable participation through upper limb management for aged clients or adults with neurological disorders. An enhanced understanding of the causes of upper limb impairment alongside rehabilitation and management techniques will be developed. Practical components focus on current assessment and intervention rationales and practice. Specifically designed workplace activities present the opportunities for occupational therapists to align theory and research, through interpretation and translation of evidence-based knowledge and skills to their practice. Within their clinical setting students can develop and apply their enhanced knowledge and skills and demonstrate critical analysis of upper limb assessment, goal setting, use of functional and collaborative person centred rehabilitation models and application of evidence based techniques
