Description

This subject provides opportunities for students to extend their clinical knowledge and demonstrate an understanding of clinical practice in a variety of hospital, private practice and community settings. Through learning in the clinical setting, professional behaviour is further developed and a broader understanding of the role of the orthoptist in managing eye care for a range of patients and clients as part of the multidisciplinary health care team is gained. Learning is directed by professional and skills-based activities, which are used for both summative and formative assessment. Students are required to reflect upon their professional development and to demonstrate fundamental competencies and skills in a clinical setting. During this clinical subject or in subsequent professional practice subjects, students attend at least one rural or regional clinical placement.
