SFU Occupational Therapy and Nursing students participate in a mobility exercise lab.Students in the Occupational Therapy and Nursing departments conducted an interdisciplinary mobility lab. Students practiced navigating various barriers with wheelchairs, walkers and other devices. 

“Hands-on training is a critical part of our program, this exercise helps our students practice the procedures that they learn in the classroom,” says Occupational Therapy professor, Dr. Lorie Rowles.

When phase one of the expansion of Sullivan Hall is completed later this year, it will include a simulated apartment. This state-of-the-art living space will afford students the opportunity to problem-solve aspects of patient care in a home setting.

Featuring a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, this simulated apartment will provide students with a better understand of the challenges of delivering care to patients with limited abilities, thus improving their capability to live independently.
