Professional Certificate in Occupational Therapy Driver Assessment

The University of South Australia’s driver assessment course offer a quality product to occupational therapists. These predominantly online subjects utilise a competency based training framework, underpinned by reflection, self directed learning and group participation, in order to deepen theoretical understanding and practical application.

An integral component of the learning is a case studies approach that:

  • Promotes critical problem solving strategies, and
  • Relates to the experience and expertise of participants.

On completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Perform an occupational analysis of the driving task
  • Describe the potential impacts of medical conditions, impairment or disability on the driver and driving performance
  • Demonstrate competencies in the occupational therapy driver assessment process including gathering and recording the required information within the pre drive screen, the on-road and feedback/counselling components of the assessment
  • Develop and prescribe a driver training and/or modifications program
  • Write an occupational therapy driver assessment report including outcomes and recommendations
  • Compile a critical description of the personal learning that has occurred

Learning modules are structured to follow the same order as the off-road and on-road assessment process. These modules are completed independently and then shared with your learning group via an on-line discussion area.
