In this subject you will look beyond the occupational challenges facing individuals and consider the ways in which occupational therapists enable change at the level of the service/organisation, community or population. This is referred to as macro level practice. You will focus on gaining knowledge and developing capabilities for an impending role as a health practitioner in a rapidly changing health and social policy context.
