Knowing how to locate, understand and use evidence in occupational therapy (OT) practice is an essential skill for all OTs. It is also essential for OTs to take their place as responsible members of local, national, international and professional communities of practice. In this unit of study, students will learn how to search for, appraise and summarise research evidence relevant to occupational therapy practice. Students will have the opportunity to explore diverse areas of OT practice by critically examining the research and considering the application of that research in practice.
