Overview

This three-day introductory workshop is a continuation of the two-day inter-professional primer on cognitive rehabilitation and focuses on knowledge and skills supporting occupational therapy practice for cognitive-perceptual issues seen in persons with a range of neurological and psychiatric conditions. The aim is to provide occupational therapists with the knowledge and skills in occupational therapy centric cognitive-perceptual assessments, problem identification, goal setting and intervention plans.

The objectives of the workshop are to equip occupational therapists with the knowledge and skills in the following areas:
  • Occupation-focused models and approaches in cognitive and perceptual dysfunctions.
  • Occupational Therapy assessments for cognitive and perceptual problems.
  • Problem identification and goal setting for cognitive perceptual issues.
  • Occupational Therapy intervention strategies and plans for management of cognitive-perceptual problems.

Teaching Team

What You’ll Learn

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able:
1. To apply treatment models and approaches to cases involving cognitive and/or perceptual issues.
2. To administer cognitive-perceptual assessments and interpret results.
3. To use metacognitive strategy and other evidence-based approaches in occupational therapy interventions across various clinical settings.
4. To apply occupational therapy treatment approaches to executive dysfunction, memory, spatial neglect, apraxia and visual-perceptual deficits.

Who Should Attend

  • Occupational therapists that are working or will work with adults with cognitive perceptual problems.


Prerequisites

AHPC Registered occupational therapist and participants who completed the course Inter-professional Workshop on Cognitive Rehabilitation for Persons with Cognitive-Perceptual Dysfunction (synchronous e-learning).


Certificate and Assessment

A Certificate of Participation will be issued to participants who:

  • Attend at least 75% of the course
  • Undertake non-credit bearing assessment during the course

Assessment Plan:

Assessment Type: MCQ and Reflection Questions

Duration: 40 minutes

Weightage: 100%

Description: The questions will assess participants’ understanding of the workshop contents. Participants will also demonstrate ability to consolidate clinical knowledge with application principles, through case reflection.

Justification: Throughout the workshop, participants will be asked to prepare cases on the application of an assessment or intervention method. This summative assessment will enable participants to consolidate their knowledge and skills, through testing workshop contents and reflecting on the cases presented.
