Advancing Professional Practice (NHPOT4004)

This modular course will equip students with knowledge and skills to support the advancement of their clinical practice. This course will foster professional development relevant to a variety of specialist and emerging practice domains. The learning activities within the course will enable in-depth critical examination of the complexities of contemporary and future occupational therapy clinical practice. All students will undertake a compulsory module focusing on the development of professional growth and resilience. As part of this module, students will engage in targeted reflection of their capabilities against an established Australian professional occupational therapy practice competency framework. This reflective process will form the basis of a personalised development plan to support their future professional growth. This development plan will then be utilised within a series of elective (practice area specific) modules to target and organise their ongoing learning.
