OT-960Z: Evidence Based Occupational Therapy Practice Capstone

6 credit hours

This course provides a capstone experience for the student to engage in program development and evidence-informed practice within an individually identified practice setting. The capacity to demonstrate critical appraisal and use of research within the practice setting is a major outcome of this course that includes a culminating capstone project. Students will demonstrate the ability to use the hierarchy of evidence and appraisal tools to screen and select evidence, demonstrate program development, and outcome measurements useful for advancing the profession through leadership and advocacy processes within a specific student directed/identified practice setting. This course is offered as an online independent study with individual faculty mentor collaboration and online support.
