Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

OT programs include clinical practice as a vital aspect of preparation for professional practice. The CAST program was developed to enhance OT students’ perceived readiness for their practice placement. This study evaluated the effectiveness of the CAST program as a useful prefieldwork program for fostering students’ feelings of competency and readiness for their practice placements.
