aota fieldwork data form - Vanderbilt University Medical Center

The purpose of the Fieldwork Data Form is to facilitate communication between occupational therapy
(OT) and occupation therapy assistant (OTA) academic programs, OT/OTA students, and fieldwork
educators. Fieldwork Educators and Academic Fieldwork Coordinators (AFWC) jointly complete the
Fieldwork Data Form to describe the fieldwork setting where students may have placements. While
much of the information may be completed by the Fieldwork Educator, there will be additional
information best obtained through AFWC interview of the fieldwork education coordinator at the site.
The AFWC will find opportunity to document fieldwork related Accreditation Council for Occupational
Therapy (ACOTE) Standards that support the ACOTE on-site accreditation review process. In addition,
OT/OTA students will find valuable information describing the characteristics of the fieldwork setting, the
client population, commonly used assessments, interventions, and expectations and opportunities for
students. The Fieldwork Data Form has been developed to reflect the Occupational Therapy Practice
Framework terminology and best practice in occupational therapy to promote quality fieldwork
experiences. It was developed through the joint efforts of the Commission on Education (COE) and
Education Special Interest Section (EDSIS) Fieldwork Subsection with input from many dedicated AFWCs
and Fieldwork Educators.
