SL4005 - Speech Pathology Professional Project A
|Student Contribution Band:
||Sch Public Health,Trop Medicine&Rehabilitation Sc (pre 2015)
Enrolment in this subject is restricted to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Speech
Pathology and the Bachelor of Speech Pathology IHCAP Programs.
In this subject, students will develop their knowledge and skills necessary for implementing
Evidence-Based Practice in the field of speech pathology. A major part of this will
involve students working in small groups to address a clinical project within an Evidence-Based
Practice framework. Projects may be centred on: developing a particular speech pathology
service within the community; improving the quality of speech pathology practice (for
example within a specified area, or range of practice) through the development of
clinical resources, reports, or guidelines; or may involve the development of websites
or other resources for a particular audience (e.g. clinicians, patients/clients, parents,
carers). It is expected that students will take steps to demonstrate a clinical need
and rationale for their project through both critical reviews of literature and through
information gathering from key stakeholders (e.g. speech pathology clinicians, speech
pathology service managers, other healthcare workers, patients/clients, parents, carers,
teachers, the general public, etc.). This subject dovetails with SL4006 Speech Pathology
Professional Projects Part B in study period 2. Throughout this subject, the focus
is on: students defining the scope of their project; demonstrating a clear need and
rationale for the development of their project; and planning for the completion of
the project. This will be achieved through the development of a literature review
and a project plan that maps out what the project will involve and how it will be
completed. This will then be picked up in Part B in study period 2 where students
will complete the project and plan for how the project will be implemented and disseminated.
- demonstrate an understanding of the principles, rationales, and professional responsibilities
towards Evidence-Based Practice within various aspects of the practice of speech pathology;
- demonstrate competency in applying skills required for evidence-based practice within
the practice of speech pathology, specifically in relation to information searching,
critical appraisal and literature reviewing;
- understand the role of quality improvement/assurance within the practice of speech
- demonstrate an understanding of the importance of capacity building within the practice
of speech pathology.
