Requisites for this module
MSC B93024 Occupational Therapy (Pre-Registration)
In this first placement, you will learn to develop an occupational focus, seeing people as occupational beings and using the occupational therapy process to understand their progress through a service. You will explore how this focus contrasts and complements the work of multi-disciplinary teams and other services. You will explore how the core values, skills and beliefs you have learned about so far are enacted in the placement setting, including communication skills and occupational theories. You will demonstrate your learning as you progress through the placement and summarise your achievements using a continuing professional development activity (HCPC, 2012) which has been agreed and negotiated with your educator.
