Description

This ground-breaking text provides a comprehensive guide to occupational therapy in Australia, from its role in the healthcare system to the scope and nature of its practice. The authors begin with an overview of the history of occupational therapy in Australia, the ethical and legal aspects of its practice and its role in population health and health promotion. The values and philosophy of occupational therapy are considered next, together with the roles and responsibilities of practitioners and specific practice features, including client-centred practice, evidence-based practice, research in occupational therapy and clinical reasoning. Key issues, including occupational analysis, the development of occupations across the lifespan, occupational therapy assessment, Indigenous issues, practice in rural and remote areas and advocacy, leadership and entrepreneurship, are also examined in detail. The first text specifically written for Australian entry-to-practice students by Australian authors, this book is destined to become an essential reference for both students and professionals in the field. 'Truly a valuable resource for all Australian occupational therapy students and practitioners.' Professor Jenny Ziviani, Children's Allied Health Research, The University of Queensland 'This is a text that will have many editions and document the evolution of the profession for decades to come.' Professor Carolyn M. Baum, School of Medicine, Washington University in St. Louis
