Clinical Practicum E - PHTY4223

Year - 2020

The purpose of Clinical Practicum E is to extend student's perspectives on the role and scope of physiotherapy practice within the broader spectrum of health; it is not intended to develop or reinforce hands on physiotherapy skills but to develop project management skills and graduate attributes. Students will be allocated to a community organisation or health service (in groups) to undertake an organisation specific Quality Improvement Project. Students will experience project management and will gain an understanding of the relevance of and importance of continued service improvement. Students will undertake both independent and group learning, and will work collaboratively with an allocated community organisation or health service, and a designated WIL academic to develop and then fulfil an agreed Project Plan. Clinical Practicum E aims to develop graduate attributes to promote work readiness e.g. high level communication skills, reflection, influence, team work, problem- solving, time management, negotiation, accountability, resilience, meeting deadlines, inter-professional practice and cultural competence.
