Diagnostic Radiography Professional Practice IIIA
Not available in 2012
This course allows students to refine their basic to advanced professional skills, by attending a professional placement at an accredited clinical centre. The professional placement will increase confidence and competence in undertaking and participating in professional procedures of increasing difficulty or complexity. Clinical placement occurs during Semester 1 for five weeks. This course is mandatory and students must pass in order to progress in the Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science (Diagnostic Radiography) course.
A Faculty Clinical Handbook, Diagnostic Radiography clinical handbook, and Clinical Accreditation Record (CAR) have been developed. These handbook's together are used by both students and clinical centers to become familiar with policies, procedures and student learning objectives.
A student should:
1. observe and identify the role and function of medical radiation practitioners and health care team members in the delivery of health care
2. continue to apply and participate in MRS procedures at a level suitable to their current clinical experience
3. continue to develop and demonstrate a professional attitude towards members of the public and other health care workers
4. further develop clinical reasoning skills
5. further develop and apply communication skills with members of the public and other health care workers
6. practice within an ethical and legal framework
7. be able to evaluate and critique his or her role within and during the clinical practice according to the level of experience
8. be able to describe the current and future roles that may be required to practice within and reflect on the need for continual learning to improve clinical practice
9. summarise their clinical learning over the entire clinical program
This course is fully integrated with MRSC3100. Diagnostic radiography students in Year 3 are expected to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes towards clinical practice and procedure at a level commensurate with their professional development as outlined in MRSC3100.
