SPEECH PATHOLOGY PRACTICE B

HCS5SPB

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students attend 27 days of clinic in an adult or paediatric setting. This may be at the La Trobe Communication Clinic or at a community based facility. This subject usually takes place in the second half of semester 1, although the sequence of final year placements may be varied, and it may be completed early in semester 2. Students work to refine the clinical skills acquired over the previous placements, applying these more independently as the subject progresses with the aim of being "towards entry level" on the COMPASS assessment to pass the subject: i.e. capability rated at entry level in most competency units, although some competencies may still be moving from intermediate towards entry level during this placement. Through block placements students develop an understanding of and participate in the broader range of roles and activities of a speech pathologist across a working week. A minority of students may complete this subject out of sequence, as their 3rd placement in final year. In this case, they will be required to reach entry level as rated in COMPASS.
