UG Coursework Unit
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
describe the impact of musculoskeletal and systemic impairments on occupational performance
administer appropriate standardised and non-standardised assessments suitable for people living with musculoskeletal health conditions
develop strategies to address occupational performance issues for people living with musculoskeletal and systemic impairments supported by evidence-based practice and professional reasoning
demonstrate effective occupational therapy skills to address musculoskeletal and systemic impairments

You will be required to wear appropriate footwear every week in the laboratory.
For several of the lab sessions you will be conducting range of motion and muscle strength assessments on fellow students. You will need to wear appropriate clothing that will allow others to observe and palpate your scapula, shoulder, arm, and hand.
Equipment for making orthoses can be booked through the Technical Staff when you make the orthosis that will be assessed. This equipment can only be used on campus.
Prescribed Learning Resources may change in future Teaching Periods.
