CeDDR is an international collaboration for research that builds knowledge of childhood disability, the mechanisms and broader impact of impairment, its consequences over the lifespan, and innovative treatments.
Clinical placements are a critical component of the training for health professionals such as occupational therapists. This project was developed in response to the challenges associated with finding sufficient, suitable clinical placements that satisfy program accreditation requirements, in an increasingly competitive clinical placement market.
