This level 2 unit builds on the bioscience units and links them with occupational therapy theoretical and practice elements. A range of health conditions commonly encountered in occupational therapy practice is presented and explored in relation to their impact on occupational performance. An occupational therapy model will be used to provide a framework to analyse conditions considering musculoskeletal, neurological, psychological, cognitive, affective, and social factors. Case scenarios drawn from health and human service practice will be used to provide an introduction to clinical reasoning, theoretical concepts and models of occupational therapy, client centred processes and potential areas of occupational therapy intervention.

The students will participate in problem based learning seminars and resource sessions with consumers and/or expert practitioners.

Students will consolidate their learning through a week of simulated practice education (full time) in which they will have the opportunity to implement their newfound knowledge in a simulated practice education setting, run by the unit chair and supported by experienced clinicians.
