Occupational therapy fieldwork education is an in-depth experience required by the American Council of Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) to demonstrate entry-level skills as a practitioner. Level II Fieldwork allows the student to apply knowledge gained in the classroom, in a clinical setting under the guidance and mentorship of a qualified therapist, also referred to as a fieldwork educator (FWE). Fieldwork shortages have long been documented and continue to present challenges for academic fieldwork coordinators (AFWC) across the countryThe purpose of this Capstone was to evaluate the impact of an in-person workshop focused on the skills required for the fieldwork supervisory process on novice occupational therapy practitioners’ perceived level of preparedness in supervising Level II occupational therapy fieldwork students. The objectives of this capstone project are: To determine if a one-day, in-person, 6-hour workshop will increase the perceived level of preparedness of novice occupational therapists in supervising occupational therapy students for a Level II fieldwork placement.
