OCCP4101: Work Occupations

2024 unit information

Productivity is identified by most people as a major life role. Occupational therapists provide assessments and interventions to enable individuals to participate in work roles safely and competently. By integrating an understanding of legislation, and organisational systems, students will learn how to deliver occupational therapy services within various compensation schemes and employment contexts. This includes workplace and functional assessment, injury prevention and management of work-related injuries, as well as strategies to enhance, restore, or maintain performance to participate in remunerative employment. There is a strong client and customer communication focus, with an emphasis on working with other health professionals, negotiation and collaboration skills as well as report writing. This unit includes learning activities that will contribute to practice education hours.
