Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Occupational Therapy 391 OTD 8124—Effects of Human Conditions on Occupation I This course focuses on how pathophysiological conditions affect intrinsic human factors so that students can make the link between the factors and occupational performance. It integrates information from previous foundational courses. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (4 credits) OTD 8125—Effects of Human Conditions on Occupation II This course expands upon, and integrates information from, anatomy, medical terminology, and introduction to occupations. Additionally, this course builds on the understanding of pathophysiology and expands on the application of occupational concepts to people with disorders of, or injuries to, the immune, cardiopulmonary, urinary, gastrointestinal, endocrine, nervous, musculoskeletal, and neurocognitive systems. Students will learn about intrinsic person factors affected by pathophysiological conditions and begin to make the link between these factors and occupational performance. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (4 credits) OTD 8153—Qualitative Evidence in Occupational Therapy This is the second course in a six-course series on research. It will prepare the student to understand and apply qualitative research methodology, including design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation of results. At the end of the semester, students will understand the relatedness of research and occupational therapy practice, critical appraisal of qualitative research evidence, and critique of qualitative research. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (3 credits) OTD 8154—Quantitative Evidence in Occupational Therapy This is the first course in a six-course series on research. It will prepare the student to understand and apply quantitative research methodology, including design, data collection, statistical analysis, and interpretation of results. At the end of the semester, students will understand the relatedness of research and occupational therapy practice, critical appraisal of quantitative research evidence, and critique of quantitative research. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (3 credits) OTD 8234—Innovations and Technology as It Relates to Context and Environment, Lecture This course focuses on the impact of various environments and contexts—such as social and economic systems, culture, physical environment, and technology—on occupational performance. Students in this course take a critical look at dayto-day occupations and state-of-the-art technology—including video games, computer-assisted interventions, documentation, triangulation, thematic analyses and other software, robotics, etc. Within the light of person, environmental, occupation, and professional factors, the student identifies applications for a future-oriented innovative practice at any level of intervention within different contexts. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (2 credits) OTD 8234L—Innovations and Technology as It Relates to Context and Environment, Lab This lab accompanies the Innovations and Technology course and provides opportunities to apply the information from the lecture portion of the course and experience different innovations. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (1 credit) OTD 8241—Occupational Therapy Interventions I— Mental Health, Wellness, and Community, Lecture The course focuses on the application of the OTPF4, the various occupation-based models and frames of reference for occupational therapy evaluation and treatment, with emphasis on wellness, prevention, and community-based therapy practice. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (6 credits) OTD 8241L—Occupational Therapy Interventions I— Mental Health, Wellness, and Community, Lab This laboratory course addresses evaluation and treatment from the perspective of various models of practice in identifying barriers and supports for participation and engagement in valued occupations. Determinants for participation in occupations will be addressed for multiple conditions within the context of diverse environments and individual contexts, through the lens of the OT process. Major frames of reference are discussed in relation to occupation-centered practice in a variety of mental health, wellness, and community practice settings. Prerequisite: successful completion of all program requirements to this point in the curriculum (2 credits) OTD 8242—Occupational Therapy Interventions II— Children and Youth, Lecture This course addresses evaluation and treatment from the perspective of various models of practice in identifying barriers and supports for participation and engagement of pediatrics with multiple conditions.
