This subject integrates academic, clinical and research knowledge learned previously in the program with the aim to provide activities that prepare the student for life as a newly-qualified practitioner. Practice contexts, practice development and medico-legal issues are explored in addition to advanced concepts of quality improvement and business and leadership within a changing healthcare context. Excellent verbal and written professional communication is expected. The student is empowered to successfully enter the workforce with the development of skills in CV and job application writing with time being spent on the development of effective interview and self-marketing strategies. Reflection on performance and the assessment of own performance against professional benchmarks is essential. The three assessment tasks offer key evidence of entry-level competence and capability in the seven practice thresholds of the PPTAANZ; in addition, the setting of SMART goals illustrates strategies for improving performance during the graduate transition period.
