Accident, illness, planned surgery and ageing can turn everyday activities into challenges which reduce independence an undermine our sense of identity. Occupational therapists recognise that being able to perform these daily activities is crucial to health and wellbeing and aim therapy towards empowering people to be active participants in their own lives. They work with people who have difficulties carrying out these activities because of disability, illness, trauma, ageing, and a range of long term conditions.
The individual will have the opportunity to observe the Occupational Therapist completing assessments and Occupational Therapy interventions to enable to patient to achieve their own individual goals.
The individual will shadow occupational therapy staff in one or two clinical areas which may include general medicine, stroke, orthopaedics, pre-assessment, surgery, hand therapy, community rehabilitation and outpatient clinics.
