Overview

The Diversity in Practice Unit aims to encourage students to apply clinical principles and practice to the specific and diverse needs of the client. This includes areas such as women’s and men’s health, mental and occupational health, incontinence and paediatrics. Integrating these skills and knowledge will reinforce the importance of a person-centred care approach to healthcare across the lifespan and inclusive of indigenous and culturally diverse populations.

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. Demonstrate and apply an integrated understanding of assessing and managing the specific and diverse needs of the client 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 based, hypothesis driven approach to clinical assessment and management in the areas of women’s and men’s health, mental and occupational health, incontinence and paediatrics;
  3. Demonstrate an ability to communicate knowledge and clinical findings to specialist and non-specialist audiences; and
  4. Utilise the Peer Assisted Learning model for constructive peer review and critical self-reflective practice.
