Occupational Science - Level 7 - 7OT509
About this module
Occupational Science is still a relatively new science that has its base in a number of different subject areas, but is of particular importance to Occupational Therapy.
The use of occupation and activity are fundamental to professional practice, and occupational science offers the opportunity to begin to explore the meaning of occupation to individual human beings. This module introduces the concept of occupational science and enables you to investigate the implications on practice. It builds on existing knowledge but introduces new ways of thinking about occupation and its importance to lifestyle.
