UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
This unit contains Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activities that require students to meet mandatory fit to practice obligations prior to attending. Failure to comply by the fit to practice deadline will result in the cancellation of your WIL activity. Full details are available at www.scu.edu.au/healthplacements.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
show intermediate abilities to translate research and theory into practice through written and verbal communication mode
demonstrate intermediate understandings of the legal, ethical, cultural and professional frameworks through reflection on practice
demonstrate competency in medication safety, blood management, and recognising and responding to acute deterioration, in a simulated environment
demonstrate a satisfactory level of progression towards the ANMAC Midwifery Professional Experiences (MPE) requirements
