Collaboration incorporating healthcare, design, and engineering fields that use design thinking is becoming more commonplace in educational and professional settings. We will discuss implications for increasing occupational therapy (OT) students’ exposure to and presence within design though implementing interprofessional education design experiences as part of current occupational therapy education and how to expand this from the classroom to the clinic.
Webinar participants should be able to:
- Recognize the need and benefits of broadening interprofessional collaborations outside traditional occupational therapy models of teaching, learning, and practice.
- Become familiar with the design process necessary for adaptive device development.
- Explain collaborative outcomes for the person served, the person’s caregivers, occupational therapists, and designers that enhance participation of the person served.
- Define the educational benefits for OT students who engage in design collaboration within their OT curriculum and how to translate this education from classroom to the clinic.
