Professional Practice 3 (ORTH5048)


This unit of study consolidates and extends knowledge and clinical competencies already acquired in previous clinical units of study. Learning will focus on achieving graduate capabilities through evaluation of clinical practice, including their own practice, in a range of clinical settings. Clinical reasoning will be emphasised for both the application and integration of clinical data for appropriate patient assessment and management. Students will be supported to work independently and to report their findings and management plans to clinical supervisors and other stakeholders for feedback. Students will be required to reflect upon their professional development and demonstrate competencies in higher level clinical skills and clinical reasoning. Students may attend a rural or regional clinical placement as part of this unit of study.
