Interprofessional Engagement With Families - NURS5100

Year - 2020

Professionals from varied backgrounds routinely encounter families of clients/students/patients. Engagement with families may be crucial to improving our understanding and for optimising outcomes; however, this process can also be challenging and complex. This unit of study explores ideas and practices for working with families and other systems drawing on systemic, dialogical and reflective practice approaches. Students are invited to consider the relevance of the unit of study content to their own professional practice and draw on their professional and personal contexts to learn with and from each other.
