This subject sets the foundation for students to apply and extend their skills as reflective practitioners and team members. The focus will be on preparation for supervised practice across a range of settings and domains of practice including medical nutrition therapy, food service management and community and public health nutrition. Students will participate in a range of interactive and simulated learning activities designed to consolidate their skills in communication, professionalism and decision making. Learning activities will focus on patient centred communication; interprofessional collaboration and multidisciplinary team working; effective individual and group communication; and multiple stakeholder communication. Further activities are designed to ensure students can maximise placement outcomes through peer assisted learning, the development of learning goals and development plans, and management of the student-supervisor relationship. The subject will place students in a position to successfully transition from campus-based learning to supervised professional practice and will be delivered across a one-week intensive learning period.
