This subject contains a 5 day Compulsory Residential School.
The Bachelor of Clinical Practice (Paramedic) is currently accredited by the Council of Ambulance Authorities (CAA). In aligning to the accreditation policy, face to face time is required when teaching and assessing clinical practice skills. The online subject and internal subject must have equity in teaching standards.
The purpose of the residential school is to demonstrate and practice clinical skills in a safe environment for the student. Allowing them an opportunity to receive timely feedback and support from the hands on experience. CLS202 is a fundamental paramedic skills subject that incorporates skills such as learning how to talk to a child to how to deliver a baby. Many of these skills require supervised practice before allowing the student autonomy in the clinical environment.
Current activities that will be included into the residential school for CLS202 are
- Simulated child birth scenarios and learning activities
- Interdisciplinary learning activities with related disciplines to deliver optimal care to the elderly and specialised groups.
