8 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Placements Act as a bridge from classroom to service delivery settings Give students an opportunity to demonstrate and apply the knowledge they have learned in class/courses Provide students with a place where they can learn core skills and techniques essential to OT, and personal skills that can help students improve professional behaviours Help students develop problem-solving abilities, evolve clinical reasoning skills, and reflect on their practice (Bonello, 2001)

9 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Placements – Schedule Fieldwork I: May 5, June 13, 2008 Fieldwork III: April 21, June 6, 2008

10 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Placements Refer to Fieldwork Resource Manual for Philosophy of fieldwork and professional standards Health policies Contracts and insurance Requirements and selection process Pre-placement communication Objectives Evaluation Process

11 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy FIELDWORK I OCT1183 Students will focus on Refining generic assessment skills Developing documentation skills Beginning to apply theoretical knowledge to the clinical setting

12 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy FIELDWORK II OCT1281 Students will focus on Developing skill in advanced assessments Consolidating academic learning with clinical learning Increasing independence in working with clients

13 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy FIELDWORK III OCT1282 Students will focus on Gaining independence in administering & interpreting assessments, treatment planning, programming & evaluation

14 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy FIELDWORK IV OCT1283 Students will focus on Managing a significant portion of the supervisor’s caseload Gaining maximal independence Consolidating all previous academic & fieldwork learning

15 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Specific FW1 and FW3 Objectives See Course Outlines Specific objectives reflect the level of skill development and supervision required

16 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

17 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy 1. Knowledge Application - educating Emphasis on development of interaction skills with clients, family, and other health care personnel Students endeavour to apply their current academic knowledge base to actual practice Supervision should be consistent/readily available Students require opportunities to observe and practise professional behaviours and skills that may include assessment and intervention techniques communication with family members / other health care personnel clinical/professional reasoning specific to client centred occupational therapy practice

18 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy 2. Transition - coaching Emphasis on 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 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

19 Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy 3. Consolidation - mentoring 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 of client centred practice components: referral analysis & assessment planning & Implementation of intervention programs discharge planning & follow-up
