This course develops the students knowledge of everyday living skills involved in daily occupations in context of professional practice. It develops their knowledge, skills and attitudes related to the person-occupation-environment [PEO]. The student will apply this knowledge in analysing the potential effects of disruption to body structure or function according to the ICF Framework. They will maximise the potential for individuals to participate in their chosen occupations. They will apply their knowledge of biomechanical principles to the modification of aspects of the human and physical environment to promote participation in everyday living skills.
The student will study the practical skills utilising the evidence base that is involved in the assessment and interventions used to implement a therapeutic program for people with occupational issues involving their everyday living skills. Case based learning [CBL] will be an integral method for achieving learning outcomes.

1. Demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of how functional anatomy and medical conditions affect occupational issues.
2. Comprehend the relationship between medical conditions and the occupational therapy process in the context of professional practice.
3. Distinguish how the individual impact of the medical condition affects a person in their daily occupation.
