Have you got what it takes?

In order to succeed as an Occupational Therapist you need to be caring, understanding, motivational and supportive, with a range of personal and professional skills needed in order to help patients get back to their pre-injury best. Throughout your career you will get the opportunity to work with a unique mix of individuals, with no two situations being alike. Somewhat challenging yet ultimately rewarding, a career as an Occupational Therapist is the best way to truly make a difference to someone’s life.

What could you achieve in a day?

Used both in private and public sectors, the main role of an Occupational Therapist is to help individuals get back their independence and confidence. From helping children to improve their hand-eye coordination to assisting injured individuals to get back to work, an Occupational Therapist’s day is filled with a number of tasks. Below is a list of some of the tasks that you could complete within a day:

  • Helping children to improve their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination
  • Helping individuals to get back to their pre-injury best
  • Designing and coordinating graded return to work programs for injured workers
  • Improving a clients’ confidence and self-esteem in social situations
  • Modifying a clients’ workplace in order to minimise or reduce future injury

Whether an individual has been in a physical accident, suffered a mental health issue or is recovering from surgery, an Occupational Therapist is there to help them get back to their pre-injury best. More information and industry insight are available at Occupational Therapy Australia.
