Enrolment is restricted to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Speech Pathology,

This course introduces students to clients with complex communication needs. These
clients have additional physical and emotional issues, and environmental and personal
factors also impact on their management. Students will demonstrate increasing awareness
of professional issues such as ethics of care and organisational structures. The ICF
will be used explicitly in the modelling of clinical reasoning skills and, on completion
of the course, students will be expected to be proficient in explicitly verbalising
their clinical reasoning for new complex cases.
- students will understand the health conditions, impairments, activity limitations,
participation restrictions of new complex cases and the impact that environmental
and personal factors (the ICF components) are having on the client;
- students will understand and demonstrate sound clinical reasoning regarding management
issues for clients;
- students will demonstrate competency in clinical reasoning for complex clients.
