OTH 611: Evaluation/Intervention: Adult Physical Rehabilitation I

This course analyzes a variety of clinical conditions that impact motor control and influence occupational performance in adults. Motor control and motor learning theories are examined as a foundation for the theoretical frames of reference that guide clinical evaluation and intervention. Client centered and evidence based evaluation, intervention and documentation of neuromotor, cognitive and perceptual problems are examined and applied. Therapeutic exercise, education and training is explored and practiced from the occupational therapy perspective with consideration to the role of the interprofessional team. Laboratory sessions focus on the therapeutic use of self, clinical reasoning and the development of clinical observation skills required for clinical practice. Students develop and apply evaluation and intervention including therapeutic handling skills to enhance occupational performance. Clinical documentation skills are developed and practiced.
