About this Unit
This unit, taken in the first session for commencing students in health science courses, offers an introduction to foundation knowledge and skills required for future practice in the health workforce. Students will gain an understanding of their roles and will develop skills required for safe, responsible and ethical practice required as health professionals. There is a specific focus on developing students’ understanding of the roles of others in the inter-professional health care team as a way of establishing professional identity. The International Classification of Functioning provides a framework within which client centred and community focussed approaches to practice is discussed. The unit also uses a ‘student capital’ framework to facilitate reflection of academic capability and development of skills required for success at university.
