Occupational Performance: Healthcare 1 - OCCP1099

Year - 2020

Many adults experience difficulty performing daily activities and require interdisciplinary team services in a hospital setting. Occupational therapy services can help enhance, restore, or maintain performance in self-care, mobility, and other primary activities necessary to return to and live in the community. Mindful of a client-centred approach, students will acquire basic assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills relevant for adults within physical healthcare contexts such as an acute hospital, and begin assuming the role occupational therapists perform within healthcare teams. In doing so, students will learn: What occupational therapy processes do I use when a person's performance of self-care and mobility activities is significantly challenged? Within physical health care settings, how do I help enhance, restore, or maintain performance in daily life activities of concern? How do I incorporate a client-centre approach within healthcare systems?
