Content

This unit provides an opportunity for students to build on prior academic and fieldwork learning to develop action plans to enable occupational health for individuals and communities and to take on educational roles. It will assist them to use empowering, advocating, mediating and enabling approaches as well as current and projected approaches adopted by occupational therapists. Topics addressed in this unit include principles that underpin enabling occupational therapy processes, social justice and equity, and links to clinical reasoning. The unit covers identification of outcomes in client-centred occupational approaches, occupation for health as a community issue in urban, rural and remote environments, and identification of outcomes as a professional and new occupational therapy graduate. Teaching methods include seminars, PBL/OBL seminars, classes and experiential learning.
