Students can only commence their clinical placement hours following the completion of their first 11 units of theory, and clinical workshop/s.
During a clinical workshop, students will be required to apply their gained knowledge in a simulated and scenario-based environment which will take them out of their comfort zone. Students will be assessed and must receive a Satisfactory (S) outcome in order to be ready to undertake their placement hours.
We will provide a list of skills the students will be exposed to.
Placement needs to be conducted within a an out-of-hospital environment and students must be supervised at all times by an approved supervisor.
For Logbook 1(Diploma and Cert IV students), students must be supervised by someone holding a Cert IV or above in a health-related discipline.
Logbook 2 (Diploma only), students must be supervised by someone holding a Diploma or above in a health-related discipline.
The employer (host organisation) must provide all required equipment to the student which they may need whilst on shift. If you prefer for the student to bring their own personal equipment such as stethoscope, safety goggles/glasses, etc. this can be organised.
Students are available at all times.
Yes. We insure all students whilst they are on placement. Students are covered by public liability and professional indemnity (both up to $30 million), and voluntary workers insurance.
Students are there to help, not hinder you whilst on placement so it will be like having another set of hands on deck. Students will always follow the strict instructions of their supervisor/s and can be rostered on when required to avoid any interruptions.
We have a committed clinical placement coordinator available to assist not only the student, but the supervisor and host organisation to make the placement experience the best it can be.
If you do have issues with providing the required hours, or fulfilling the required skills to a student, or if the student is not working out you can make contact with our clinical placement coordinator to discuss the best plan of action to go forward.
If you would like further information, please fill out the form and submit your details. We will be contact to discuss what is involved and which students we have available.
Currently, there are students who can be mobilised in most states.
