Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study examined how OT practitioners prepare for the role of fieldwork educator. Supports to facilitate the role and barriers to the utilization of fieldwork education tools were identified. Comparison of practice settings noted statistically significant differences. The results of this study will serve to inform the process by which OT practitioners engage in professional learning to support their competency as fieldwork educators.
