This subject enables students to consolidate and embody clinical practice in a number of ways. Specified patient case studies are explored using online resources as preparation for hands-on laboratory sessions. Using a community-of-practice framework, guided simulation scenarios are enacted in university clinical practice laboratories where post-simulation debriefing and reflection assists and informs students for their subsequent practice. The central focus of the subject is planning and coordination of care for patients with complex health issues commonly encountered in acute hospital settings. In preparation for entering the workforce, students explore concepts of leadership, socialisation in the workplace and clinical management strategies to assist with their new graduate year.
