About this course
Occupational therapy involves the holistic use of normal daily occupations, to help individuals, across the life span, to participate to their highest level, in meaningful and purposeful activity. The ultimate goal is to support the achievement of life satisfaction through optimal participation and engagement within one's own contexts. Occupational therapists (OT's) are trained to use occupation-based interventions to promote health; enhance, restore, or maintain function; and/or prevent further disability. By working cooperatively with other health care professionals and engaging in evidence-based intervention, OT's are able to support clients in achieving the highest possible level of independence.
