 Occupation is what we routinely do, incorporating activities that are life sustaining, purposeful and meaningful. The influence of occupation on health of persons with disabilities across cultures will be analyzed throughout the lifespan. Occupation can be used to facilitate improved health outcomes in people with disease and chronic conditions. Students will acquire an understanding and appreciation of the use of occupation to facilitate life task completion. Participation is an outcome concept involving engagement in activities like school, work and social life.
