Practice Education Commendations

The Practice Education Commendation program acknowledges the important contribution occupational therapists make in the practice education of occupational therapy students during undergraduate and post-graduate university placements. Nominations for the award are sought annually from graduating students from all Queensland universities offering an Occupational Therapy program. Here (see below) are the latest round of recipients at the awards ceremony. Congratulations to all!!!

Here are some of our 2016 Practice Education Commendation Award recipients. Congratulations to all!

Students are asked to nominate one or more practice educators who have made a significant impact on their development as occupational therapists during their placements. Commendation recipients demonstrate exemplary practice in facilitating the learning of occupational therapy students by promoting the student’s identity as an occupational therapist, encouraging reflective practice and demonstrating effective communication skills in supervision and support.

Recipients receive a Certificate of Commendation endorsed by the OTPEC-Q and this is presented at ceremonies each year.  We congratulate occupational therapists on receiving this award and thank you for your enthusiasm and support of the practice education of future occupational therapists.

If you are a student who wishes to nominate your current or recent practice educator for a commendation award, you can do so by completing the form provided by your university.

For further information, contact the clinical education staff at your university Occupational Therapy Program.
