This subject develops students' written, oral and interpersonal communication skills in the context of empathetically nursing a diverse Australian population. There is a distinct focus on learning to recognise and understand other people's perspectives. Core literacies related to practice readiness including interpersonal skills, intrapersonal knowledge, and behavioural management skills are introduced. Students are guided to reflect on their own identity and values and how these affect the way they interact with others. Different world views and representations of diverse groups are explored as well as concepts of power, privilege and personal bias. Learning occurs in a non-confrontational, respectful, collaborative and collegial space.
