Professional Experience Placement (PEP):
Students will be allocated PEP within individual health care agencies. To be eligible to undertake PEP, all students must be ‘Verified’ as meeting College of Health and Medicine PEP Safety in Practice Compliance as per the Course Entry Requirements.
Students who cannot or do not comply with these requirements will not be allocated PEP and therefore will not be able to complete this unit.
PEP dates MAY differ from University of Tasmania calendar semester dates.
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.
