This unit is the first of three clinical practice units in which you will gain experience by observing a real chiropractic clinic during a placement for part of the term. On placement, you will be expected to perform as a functional team member under guidance of the clinic supervisors and placement mentors whilst developing observational and reflective skills. While during your on-campus time in Clinical Practice 1 you will also learn how to communicate clearly and effectively with patients. You will also become immersed in the clinical experience by applying and integrating the clinical skills and knowledge you have gained up until this point in preparation for Clinical Practice 2.
