Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Stages of Professional Competency Development Entry-Level Student Knowledge Application Consolidation Transition Entry-Level Clinician Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Source : Competency Based Fieldwork Evaluation for Occupational Therapists Bossers, Miller, Polatajko, Hartley, 2002
Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Stage / Level 2 – Transition: “ coaching” Primary emphasis is: Practice and experience in clinical problem-solving, assessment, and intervention Students should begin to share and assume responsibility for all components of client centred practice, such as referral analysis and assessment Planning and implementation of intervention programs Discharge planning and follow-up Style of supervision: Collaborative Students should be encouraged to try to develop their own ideas/insights and should be able to engage in discussion of several solutions to occupational performance problems and viable courses of action Primary role of Educator / Preceptor: Coach
Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Providing Feedback to Level 2 Fieldwork Students Promote student self-reflection Prompt with appropriate questions Engage in discussion of several solutions to occupational performance problems and encourage student to begin to make decisions about the most viable course of action Bossers (2009)
Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Stage / Level 3 - Consolidation “ mentoring” Primary emphasis on: final preparation of student to assume the role of competent, entry-level occupational therapist Students should be encouraged to assume as much independence as possible in professional reasoning & in linking academic theory with practice Students may require some guidance but should take responsibility for client centred practice components: referral analysis & assessment planning & Implementation of intervention programs discharge planning & follow-up Style of Supervision: Consultative Primary role of educator / preceptor: Mentor
Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Providing Feedback to Level 3 Fieldwork Students Student self-reflection should be self-initiated Encourage student to identify and pursue professional learning needs Work “collegially” with the student Bossers (2009)
