This 18 credit point unit is a clinical unit where you will complete your second long block of work integrated learning. Successful completion will contribute towards your accreditation requirements of completing a minimum of 1000 professional practice hours. This unit aims to foster your ability to consistently utilise the occupational therapy process when working with clients at a graduate level. Through integrating and applying the academic concepts, professional reasoning and professional behaviours you have developed throughout your course you will ensure the ethical and legal responsibilities of your professional practice are met. You will be allocated to one work integrated learning opportunity, which will be selected by the practice education manager from a variety of settings and client groups. You may also be required to undertake work integrated learning away from your home town at your own expense. Work integrated learning opportunities will vary in start and ﬁnish dates and it is important to plan on being available for commencement from January until the end of the Term 2 break of the same year.
