Credit points: 30

Subject outline

You will complete 15 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) and swallowing, and people using mutli-modal communication are applied. You will use assessment information, client observation and principles of evidence-based practice to formulate assessment plans and intervention strategies. You 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.
