This course focuses on clinical conditions in the adult/geriatric population as students analyze the potential effect on body functions and structure impacting on occupational performance and participation through the progression of aging. The course will utilize the OT Practice Framework (III) as a guideline to understanding the relationship between occupational areas of concern and practice and the conditions common to adults from various medical conditions, injury, trauma, and disability. Students will utilize case studies to guide understanding on the practice area of rehabilitation among the adult population particularly focusing on the precautions, contraindications, side effects, and other safety issues addressed by OT practitioners during treatment and intervention strategies. This course parallels the co-requisite OTA courses in developing therapeutic interventions through analyzing, grading, and adapting activities and the environment to promote independence in activities of daily living for individuals with varied abilities, across the lifespan, from the different medical conditions among the adult and aging population.
