SWEP Orientation

As part of SWEP's Credentialing and Registration Framework update there are now three avenues for Green Prescriber level orientation to be delivered. Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists orientation is managed through the SWEP-CQU education program. This can be delivered in person at CQU Melbourne or by negotiation on site in combination with an online induction presentation by Prof. Carolyn Unsworth in a half day format. For other prescribers SWEP provides online orientation which is managed by the SWEP IMT team.

SWEP-CQU Education : Assistive Technology Continuing Professional Development Program

Relevant Registration types: Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist

CQUniversity has partnered with SWEP (State Wide Equipment Program) to develop and deliver a professional development and competency assessment program for new and existing  SWEP  allied health prescribers. This program is also available for allied health professionals who do not prescribe for SWEP, but wish to supplement their knowledge and skills in assistive technology prescription. All workshops are CPD activities in respect to AHPRA registration.

The program offers full & half day educational workshops at the Introductory (Green) and Advanced (Amber/Red) levels. The Introductory (Green) workshop is a requirement for therapist before applying to become a SWEP prescriber. The Advanced Workshops are focused on more specialised assistive technology and complex clients. The workshops will be delivered by clinical and educational experts. Each workshop has a limited number of participants and two staff members to ensure a high quality educational  experience.  All workshops are interactive and practical and involve trialing and prescribing equipment using a range of case studies. Advanced level workshops also include competency assessment.
