About this Unit
This unit introduces students to the profession of speech pathology, including the regulatory, ethical and legal frameworks which underpin speech pathology practice within the context of the changing health environment. Students will explore and reflect on their developing professional identity with reference to the Professional Standards for Speech Pathologists in Australia, including the domains of professional conduct, reflection and lifelong learning, and speech pathology practice. In addition, students will have opportunities to develop core skills in communication and professional interaction, including gathering, analysing and reflecting on information through a process of clinical reasoning. Students will also develop introductory level skills in core speech pathology processes such as safe and effective observation, documentation and therapeutic communication through practical activities with academic staff and other students.
