Diversity is the hallmark of occupational therapy practice. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages to address issues related to participation in everyday life caused by illness, psychological or emotional difficulties, developmental delay, the effects of aging, and life transitions such as retirement. They aim to address barriers that prevent individuals, families, and groups from accessing their communities in ways that are important for health and wellbeing.
The Occupational Therapy Practice program at Monash University is an integrated curriculum centred on Scenario-Based Learning (SBL), including units focused on: Foundations of Occupational Therapy, Humans as Occupational Beings, Occupational Performance, Enabling Change in Human Occupation, Transition to Practice and Advanced Professional Practice. Fieldwork is embedded throughout the program, and includes an extensive practice based project.
You will gain the theoretical foundations of occupational therapy and practice including the concepts and principles underpinning occupational therapy practice and the relationship between the person, environment and occupations and the impact on human health and wellbeing. You will examine occupational therapy practice from a lifespan perspective and examine how illness, disability or occupational deprivation relate to cognitive, behavioural, emotional and psychosocial change.
