Reflexivity and OT Professional Practice - OCCP5242

Year - 2020

This unit includes an extended fieldwork placement and on-campus workshops to provide students with an opportunity to consolidate, apply and extend their knowledge of occupational therapy practice, with a focus on the range of competencies identified by OT Board of Australia needed to become a novice practitioner. This final fieldwork placement experience is focused on students developing independence and autonomy demonstrating the ability to manage a caseload approximating up to 80% of that expected of a new graduate in that specific position. Students will incorporate their fieldwork experiences into an exploration of reflexivity as a core capability in professional practice. .
