This course is the capstone to the two-year MSLP degree. Students consolidate the links between theory and practice, and develop independence in clinical work. Students discuss and critically appraise i) workplace management, ii) methods and practices of interprofessional case management, and iii) service delivery. Students apply counselling skills and ethical decision-making framework to clinical scenarios. Students manage a range of clients independently, consulting with colleagues and other professionals as appropriate and applying the relevant theory to evidence based practice. Students continue to develop competence in clinical practice as specified by the COMPASS, working in a variety of settings and demonstrating consideration of the cultural and ethical context in clinical practice.
