Overview

Integrated Practice 3 aims to facilitate students in developing further knowledge and skill in the areas of critical, emergency and surgical care; as well as specialty areas of paediatrics, oncology, burns and hand therapy. These skills add to the foundations of knowledge gained from previous units and will equip students with the necessary level of understanding and skill when managing these patient groups in the clinical setting across the lifespan and inclusive of indigenous and culturally diverse populations. Students will also commence a capstone research project on an area of evidence based practice, with opportunity for peer and academic review.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate and apply an integrated understanding of assessing and managing critical care, surgical, emergency and specialist care patient groups across the lifespan and inclusive of indigenous and culturally diverse populations;
  2. Collate relevant clinical information, critically analyse & interpret clinical information and generate an advanced, problem / hypothesis driven approach to clinical assessment and management;
  3. Demonstrate knowledge and ability to develop a research proposal with introduction to a capstone research project and facilitate evidence based practice; and
  4. Utilise the Peer Assisted Learning model for constructive peer review and critical self-reflective practice.
