Occupational Therapy

As an occupational therapist, you will co-create solutions to everyday problems experienced by the people who use your services. You will work with people of all ages to support them to manage the impact of illness and disability, enabling them to carry out everyday occupations (getting dressed, working, shopping, studying, playing sport) and be active participants in society. This course will develop your ability to formulate an understanding of a person’s occupational needs through assessment, identify relevant interventions to support them, and to review your actions. Completion of the course will enable you to be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You will explore areas including: • mind and body structure and function • the importance of occupation for health and wellbeing • the impact of the socio-political environment on enabling participation in society • assessment tools and techniques • interventions • innovation and entrepreneurship
