OTA-130

Conditions in Occupational Therapy I*

This course is the first in a series of two courses that apply knowledge of conventional anatomy and physiology as a basis for understanding how disease and injury are disruptors for occupational performance; this course focuses on pediatric and mental health conditions. Emphasis is placed on the clients' experience of the disease or injury (client-centered) and how that influences the quality and degree to which they are able to engage in daily occupations, while also addressing underlying neurological mechanisms where relevant. Students will be introduced to therapy interventions and learn the role of OT practitioners in the management of disease. Students will begin to build the research skills that will help identify evidence-based OT interventions associated with specific pathologies. Attention to infection control and treatment techniques related to each condition will be emphasized.
