This unit follows on directly from Clinical Practice 3 and will provide you with your first hands-on practical experience in the CQU Health Clinics. You will build on your theoretical knowledge and practical skills gained over the previous three clinical units. You will begin undertaking patient assessments and management with guidance from your supervisor. During the term, you will actively demonstrate your developing clinical assessment and decision making, treatment delivery, record keeping, communication skills and professionalism with support from the clinical supervisors. By the end of CP4, an increasing level of competency, consistency and professionalism in the healthcare setting should be demonstrable.
