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 enables students to further develop the knowledge and skills required for child and family health practice. You will be exposed to new concepts and information that will enable you to manage more complex situations as you move towards independent practice. Learning in this unit will focus upon counselling, the management of perinatal depression, and complex feeding issues.
