ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION A

HCS5AIA

2015

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

Students will complete 16 weekly clinical cases delivered within a problem-based learning framework. Building on learning from HCS4ACS, the principles of assessment and intervention for clients, with impairments of communication, (speech, language, voice, fluency, hearing) and swallowing, and people using mutli-modal communication are applied. Students use assessment information, client observation and principles of evidence-based practice to formulate assessment plans and intervention strategies. Students are required to provide rationales for clinical decision-making and to demonstrate knowledge of the professional role of a speech pathologist in a team. The impact of social and cultural issues on service provision is considered.
