This course provides students with an opportunity to explore the organization and management of occupational therapy services. Offered prior to student's full time Level II Fieldwork, students learn about the range of practice contexts and how policy issues influence OT practice; trends in models of service delivery; and managerial functions including human resource management, financial management and program management. Issues of reimbursement, marketing, program evaluation, and advocacy are explored. Special emphasis is on understanding the supervisory role, OT/OTA collaborative relationships and supervision as it relates to developing and implementing fieldwork education.
