UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
This unit contains laboratory activities and/or professional experience learning that require students to fulfil certain vaccination and compliance requirements prior to attending. As some of these can take up to 5 months to complete, you must prepare now. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in you being unable to undertake the stipulated Laboratory Activity and/or Professional Experience Learning which may result in failure of the unit. Full details are available at www.scu.edu.au/healthplacements. Students will likely have to travel away from their local area and placements are located anywhere in Australia. Students are required to support themselves financially (including accommodation, travel and living expenses) during placements.
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.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
apply an ethical approach to professional practice and clinical/professional reasoning whilst demonstrating the use of client-centred practice, evidence-based practice, professional problem solving, initiative and self-direction
demonstrate a high level of competence in all areas of occupational therapy practice as specified in the Australian Occupational Therapy Competency Standards
actively participate as an integral team member whilst demonstrating effective assessment and interventions in direct client care, case management, project management or consultancy
