ORNT 208 - Orientation to Rehabilitation


Course Description:
Orientation to Rehabilitation examines the conceptual framework that supports the practice of rehabilitation and the specific roles of the rehabilitation therapist assistant within this framework. Areas explored include disability, ethical and professional behavior, teamwork and therapeutic relationships. Medical terminology and clinical documentation practice are introduced as foundational skills and are built upon throughout the program. These conceptual and practical foundations are reinforced by a series of observational visits to selected clinical settings as well as the development of a fieldwork portfolio that will serve as a basis for successful clinical fieldwork and professional employment upon graduation.
