Mary Edwards (BScCOT, MHSc, OT Reg (Ont.)) has a Masters in Health Sciences and has had over 30 years of experience in the education of Student Occupational Therapists. For 6 years she has was the Professional Practice (Fieldwork Education) Coordinator for the McMaster University, School of Rehabilitation Sciences, Occupational Therapy Program.

She is also a past Assistant Dean for the Occupational Therapy program, having led the process of curriculum development prior to starting the entry level Masters program in 2000. Currently, she is the incoming President of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists and is committed to the development of the occupational therapy profession as it confronts a new era of practice opportunities in multiple contexts.

Sue enjoys leading workshops to support continuing professional development and competence as well as supporting organizations through the facilitation of strategic and operational development. Sue has explored the notion of spirituality in practice, and in one's personal life , and has focused particularly upon culture and spirituality in her teaching. Sue is concentrating her research efforts in gaining an in-depth understanding of the processes of acculturation and diaspora by working with internationally educated health professionals to facilitate their transition to a new culture and entry to professional practice. Matthew Molineux (BOccThy, MSc, PhD) has worked as an occupational therapist in both Australia and the United Kingdom, and has worked in a number of settings, including hospitals, primary care, rehabilitation, prison, and for many years in higher education. He is passionate about occupation based practice and is known for encouraging, and sometimes challenging, occupational therapy students and practitioners to reflect on the extent to which their practice is occupationally focused. He feels strongly that new and emerging practice opportunities provide a chance to truly demonstrate the impact occupation can have on individuals, groups and communities.


This book can be considered a valuable resource to anarea that has so little focused information published, as thistopic usually appears as a paragraph in generic occupationaltherapy books Importantly, this book highlights thefunction of role emerging placements in shaping the future ofoccupational therapy practice.
