CSCD2064: Introductory Practice 1: Clinical

2024 unit information

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, accurately describing, and participating in provision of clinical services to their client. Students are required to use critical reflection to inform professional development and practice. Students will consider issues directly related to clinical practice such as professional relationships, and problem-solving strategies for managing ethical issues associated with being a student working with children and their families, and with professionals. Students will develop intervention strategies for facilitating client learning. Also, students will learn about ethics, providing culturally safe and appropriate health services to indigenous and diverse populations, basic report writing, and case presentation skills. Students will gain knowledge regarding compliance to policies and procedures of the on-campus clinic and government legislation.
