This capstone unit will prepare you to use your emerging occupational therapy skills and knowledge to conduct a needs analysis and then design, implement and evaluate programs that will address the complex needs of clients in a community setting. You will work in a small group using an occupational justice lens to complete a unique workplace project identified by local stakeholders. Supervision and mentoring will be provided by academic staff in collaboration with selected community-based organisations. You will undertake a minimum of 150 hours of Work Integrated Learning during this unit. Your stakeholder focused workplace project will generate information that forms the basis of an industry standard conference presentation and written report, utilising the graduate level professional skills you have developed throughout your course of study in occupational therapy.
