This course is designed to prepare students for their fieldwork experiences. Lab instruction will include topics relevant to safe and ethical occupational therapy practice in any setting, including patient confidentiality and HIPAA, OT Code of Ethics, diversity, and inter-disciplinary teamwork. Students will earn CPR and basic first aid certificates, and will be guided through the process of being medically cleared for client contact in a practice setting. Students will also learn and practice skills relevant to professional communication (written and verbal) and collaboration, legal and ethical issues in fieldwork and practice, and will address supervisory issues relevant to practice settings with or without occupational therapy services, in order to best prepare for Level 1 Fieldwork experiences.
