Occupational Therapy

This is a problem-based learning programme which has been designed to enable students to consider humans as occupational beings and the complex, dynamic relationship between health, well-being, participation and occupation. Students will be encouraged to critically analyse and apply models of occupational therapy practice in order to equip them to advocate for and deliver contemporary occupational therapy, which is occupation-focussed, occupation-based and occupation-centred.
