This unit of study will give students the opportunity to advance their assessment, intervention and professional communication in the area of workplace health and safety, rehabilitation and other areas of private practice, where there is a strong focus on client and customer centred services. Students will practice work health and safety assessments through hazard identification, risk assessments and development of an intervention plan in an industry. In this unit, students will conduct a functional assessment, as well as develop their communication skills, needed to negotiate and collaborate with other health professionals and stakeholders in this area of practice. Students will also refine their written communication skills to be able to produce professional reports. In all areas of this unit, there will be a focus on students articulating their clinical reasoning and justification in decision making.
