This unit provides students with an opportunity to develop and implement their occupational therapy knowledge, behaviours and competencies. Students will be required to integrate and apply theory and skills learned in previous units and develop professional reasoning, reflection and communication skills. Students will complete a 320 hour (8 weeks full time) work integrated learning experience under the supervision of one or more occupational therapy clinicians in remote and metropolitan locations throughout Australia.
For this unit students have specific assessment tasks that they have to complete to satisfy requirements and to pass the unit of study e.g. critical reflections and professional portfolio. The students are assessed by the supervisor during their practice education using the SPEF-R2 (Student Practice Evaluation Form – Revised 2) and they are specifically assessed on the below domains:
- Professional behaviour
- Self-management skills
- Co-worker communication
- Communication skills
- Information gathering
- Service provision
- Service evaluation
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
