SPEECH PATHOLOGY PRACTICE B

HCS5SPB

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students attend 24 days of clinic in either an adult or a paediatric setting. This may be through the La Trobe Communication Clinic or at an external facility. Students will attend one 24 day placement at one facility. This subject usually takes place in the second half of semester 1, although the sequence of entry level placements may be varied.  Students begin to refine the clinical skills acquired over the previous two semesters, applying these more independently as the subject progresses with the aim of achieving entry level on the COMPASS® assessment by the end of the subject. Students develop specialist clinical skills related to particular work settings and develop their clinical management skills further. Through block placements students develop an understanding of and participate in the broader range of roles and activities of a speech pathologist working across a working week. Students monitor their progress in obtaining the desired level of professional competency and devise a plan of action to address competency gaps.  Students are assessed on placement using COMPASS.
