Synopsis

Developing Clinical Competence: A Workbook for the OTA helps occupational therapy assistant (OTA) students and novice practitioners develop the "practical" problem-solving and "real-life" skills essential for fieldwork and clinical practice. This user-friendly workbook helps the reader apply occupational therapy concepts and improve the clinical reasoning skills needed for academic coursework and successful transition to fieldwork and entry-level clinical practice.The methods, learning activities, and worksheets presented in Developing Clinical Competence stem from Marie J. Morreale's more than 15 years of experience teaching OTA students. Worksheets and learning activities address areas such as professionalism, ethical behaviour, clinical decision making, effective communication, roles and responsibilities, selecting and implementing interventions, safety, assessing client function, documentation, group process, and more. The worksheets, learning activities, and suggested worksheet answers are written in an easy-to-read format and include a variety of methods such as multiple choice, matching, and true/false questions; case studies; vignettes; fill in the blanks; and experiential activities.Although the chapters and exercises are presented in a logical progression, each chapter is fully independent of the others - readers can skip around and complete individual chapters or particular exercises in the order most conducive to individual learning needs. Appropriate for a variety of practice areas, Developing Clinical Competence can serve as a companion text for multiple classes throughout an OTA curriculum or as a useful study aid when preparing for fieldwork or the national certification exam.Instructors in educational settings can visit www.efacultylounge.com for additional materials to be used for teaching in the classroom.
