Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students complete clinical cases delivered in a problem-based learning framework. Building on knowledge of assessment for intervention and management for clients with impairments of communication and swallowing, students use assessment information, clinical experience, client observation and principles of evidence-based practice to formulate intervention and management strategies. Students are required to provide detailed rationales for clinical decision-making and to demonstrate knowledge of the professional role of speech pathologists from a broad range of contexts, from the point of view of the client, their family and their environment. The impact of management across the lifespan is considered. Students will also apply their knowledge of a variety of service delivery options to ensure the best outcome for their clients.
