Content

This unit is one of three 4th year units that support transition into occupational therapy practice. Through study in this unit, you will prepare for taking on a practitioner role, regardless of what field of practice you choose. You will be encouraged to share your previous learning experiences and look to future professional development as part of your commitment to being a registered occupational therapist. You will be challenged and encouraged to consolidate the learning yu have undertaken across the four years of the course and to be a partner in development of the learning for this unit.

The unit is an opportunity to integrate prior knowledge, skills and experiences and tie all 'loose ends' that you identify in your learning. Clinical reasoning and reflective practice will be an integral part of the unit and through learning activities, you will be able to explain your reasoning applied to a range of practice situations. By completing the unit, you will be prepared for job seeking and to begin practice with a well developed professional development plan.
