This unit is undertaken as the final unit of study in the course. Students propose and complete a capstone learning initiative through which they apply cognate discipline knowledge, problem-solving capability, and applied research skills to develop a proposed solution to a unique administrative, leadership, management, or clinical challenge. Students undertake a self-directed independent project under the supervision of an appropriate academic staff member. Although students may carry out different initiatives, the course content for all students includes planning, delivery, and evaluation. The unit is designed to consolidate the theoretical and practical advanced knowledge and skills that students have acquired throughout their postgraduate studies.
