Occupational science is the study of humans as occupational beings.
We are interested in what people chose to do in their daily lives, how and why, and the relationship between people’s occupations and their health and wellbeing. Occupational therapists are health professionals who promote health and well-being through enabling people to be engaged in their everyday occupations.
The seminars in the Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy Seminar Series cover topics from both disciplines and you are all welcome to join us - no booking required! All seminars are held at the School of Health Professions in the Peninsula Allied Health Centre, Derriford Road, Plymouth PL6 8BH.
