Code of Practice to be taught as part of University Degree
Safe and effective clinical practice in the assessment and provision of community (disability) equipment is to be taught and assessed as part of the pre-registration BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy at Oxford Brookes University. This will commence in spring 2012. The module will be based on the Code of Practice for Community Equipment and will be delivered by CECOPS Approved Trainers.
Our Executive Director, Brian Donnelly, says:
“This is a major step forward in terms of getting those responsible for assessing and providing community equipment with the right knowledge base to provide their role more effectively. This can only result in better outcomes for the service user, and we are delighted that Oxford Brookes University see the value the Code will bring to their students.”
