Introductory Practice 2: Clinical (CSCD2066)
UNIT OF STUDY
Students work with an advanced student and participate in clinical service delivery in the on-campus clinic. Students must demonstrate competence in the context of direct supervision (novice level), in observing, seeking information about, accurately describing and participating in provision of clinical services to their client. They are to seek information relevant to their professional development and client care, and show awareness of their impact on the client. To support their clinical learning, this unit will consider communication and counselling skills involved with working with caregivers and adult clients, and problem solving strategies for identifying and managing ethical issues involved in working with adults and their families. This unit will also explore the role of speech pathologists in the health system and their participation in professional teams.
