Course Description

This course focuses on leadership and management skills for the delivery of occupational therapy services in a global marketplace. Students are introduced to a range of current and ongoing international health issues and developments in global health. This includes new and emerging conditions/diseases and their impact on health/wellness and participation in occupation/life roles (i.e. leisure and social participation, parenting, etc.). The goal of this course is to enable students to understand the leadership role occupational therapists can take as part of an interprofessional team in the changing local, national, and global health care environment. As a class, students will implement a service project to support an agency/organization providing global health care services.
