General Information

Overview

This unit continues the analysis of the lifespan through an occupational lens. You will build on foundation knowledge of lifespan development to understand the occupational roles of adults from young adulthood to end of life. Selected issues impacting upon occupational performance during these periods of development will be explored using an overarching health framework (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, also known as ICF) and occupational therapy practice models. The potential contribution of the occupational therapist during each phase will be highlighted, and the role of the occupational therapist in the facilitation of occupationally-inclusive interventions will be explored. You will be introduced to professional reasoning and evidence-based practice in the context of working with adults and older people. You will also attend a series of fieldwork sessions, working with older people in the community, which will enhance learning and provide the opportunity to practice application of the occupational therapy process in a real-world situation.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from "Have your say" feedback items, informal student feedback, staff observations, direct feedback from CenatacareCQ staff and clients.

Feedback

Despite the necessary conversion to telehealth, the WIL experience was still valued highly by students and the external organisation (CentacareCQ). However, students and clients expressed a desire for face to face contact.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the WIL experience be continued, with a return to face-to-face contact if COVID-19 conditions allow it.

Feedback from "Have your say" feedback items; informal student feedback.

Feedback

Students were particularly appreciative of the opportunity to conduct clinical assessments on clients during the WIL component.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the requirement to conduct clinical assessments on clients be retained as a component of the WIL experience.

Feedback from "Have your say" feedback items, informal student feedback, staff observations.

Feedback

Students found the inter-professional education (IPE) sessions to be a valuable learning experience. However, some noted that exposure to more occupational therapy assessments would prepare them better for the simulated case conferences. There were also suggestions that more disciplines (in addition to occupational therapy, speech pathology & clinical psychology) could be included in these sessions.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the IPE sessions remain a core component of the unit, and that further attention is paid to inclusion of more clinical assessments in class content. This would be feasible in the skills workshops. It is also recommended that other disciplines be approached for inclusion in the IPE sessions.

Feedback from "Have your say" feedback items, informal student feedback, staff observations.

Feedback

The variety of teaching formats retained interested and contributed to learning.

Recommendation

It is recommended that guest lectures, skills workshops, and article reviews be retained in addition to lecture and WIL content to provide students with a varied learning experience.

Feedback from "Have your say" feedback items

Feedback

Some students had some trouble interpreting the portfolio rubric.

Recommendation

It is recommended that, after reviewing the assessment piece and rubric, more time is spent with students at the beginning of term to ensure that all understand what is required of them in each assessment item.
