Partnering for Change (P4C) OT Modules

What are the P4C OT Modules?

P4c ot modules

The Partnering for Change (P4C) OT Modules consist of 7 distinct educational modules, each with a specific learning focus. The Modules are designed to assist occupational therapists in acquiring the baseline knowledge and skills required to implement the P4C model of service effectively.  

The Modules are intended to support school-based occupational therapists in making a significant shift in their practice; moving from an impairment-focused, one-to-one model of rehabilitation  service to the P4C Model of service, which is a population-based, occupation-focused approach aimed at improving participation, building capacity, and fostering self- and family-management. The content of the Modules was chosen to best support occupational therapists in making the transition to this new model of practice.
