Students will explore the unique contribution of occupational therapists in the health care setting, apply theoretical and philosophical principles underpinning the profession to client groups, and learn analytical skills to examine the relationship between a person, their environment and their participation in daily occupations. The occupational therapy problem solving process will be briefly introduced. In addition, students will study clinical and professional competencies related to practice as a health professional. Finally, the above knowledge and skills will be applied during supervised fieldwork experience.

REHA 7017  Paediatric Physiotherapy  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 401047  

From 2018 students should take 401106 - Paediatric Physiotherapy. This unit aims to prepare the student as a competent entry-level practitioner in paediatric physiotherapy. It focuses on understanding the changes which occur from infancy to maturity and the impact of congenital or acquired conditions, or lifestyle diseases causing dysfunction. Clinical and ethical reasoning and family-centred practice are both stressed. The approach will also emphasise the role of physiotherapy within inter-professional teams to prepare for different work settings (acute care, rehabilitation and/or community). The unit integrates prior learning from previous years (especially units related to neurology musculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary physiotherapy and exercise rehabilitation).

REHA 7027  Research into Practice: bridging the clinician-researcher divide in applied and creative therapies  (10 Credit Points)  
Legacy Code: 102728  

Evidence Based Research (EBR) can inform excellence in clinical practice in order to best meet the needs of our clients and patients. How we choose and use this research is critical, as is the way that we understand ourselves to be a researcher, beyond our practitioner identity. If you are seeking to translate benchtop research (basic laboratory approaches) into applied research practice, and if you are transitioning towards a new identity as a clinician-researcher, this is the unit for you. Our applied research focus considers broad applications relevant to the creative arts therapies, verbal therapies, allied and other health professions, by looking at research processes which ultimately improve practice in the 'real world'.
