Students must complete a 15-day clinical practicum, and meet clinical practice requirements. In order to commence workplace learning outside of the University of Tasmania (including clinical placements and visits) students are required to demonstrate compliance with the Faculty of Health and School of Nursing and Midwifery policies relevant to workplace based learning. These include the Police Check Policy and Procedures, Infectious Disease Policy, Code of Conduct, and Safety in Practice Agreement. Students who do not comply with these policies will not be placed or will be removed from placements and therefore will not be able to complete this unit. Students who have not complied or are unsure of the policies should seek guidance from the School.
This unit uses group work and late enrolment may affect your ability to participate actively.
This unit equips students with the foundational knowledge and skills necessary for understanding their experience as a student in child and family health settings. Students will have the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge of physical and developmental assessment, nutrition and infant feeding. Concurrent participation in a 15-day clinical practicum is required as part of this unit.
