Speech Pathology Clinical Education in Australia project - Lunchtime session Project Team: Dr Sally Hewat, Ms Joanne Walters, Dr Anne Hill, Mrs Adriana Penman, Dr Simone Arnott, Dr Stacie Attrill, Ms Abigail Lewis, Dr Ruth Nicholls and Miss Julia Hanrahan (Project Officer) In 2017, clinical education is occurring in an environment of more programs, increasing student numbers, increasing demand for placements and a reduction in placement offers by traditional placement sites. Universities have become increasingly innovative in order to source appropriate clinical experiences for their students. Overall, there is significant pressure on Australian universities, and the profession as a whole, to ensure graduates are sufficiently skilled and competent to enter the workforce. This project aims to comprehensively identify, discuss and disseminate what is currently being done, and what might be done in the future, to ensure the sustainability of speech pathology clinical education in Australia. This lunch time forum will outline results so far from the project, providing a current overview of clinical education in speech pathology universities around Australia. The barriers and facilitators that support or hinder appropriate and successful student placements will be discussed. This lunch time forum will allow speech pathologists to discuss future ideas to ensure the sustainability of student placements, including their perspectives from a range of sectors regarding clinical education models, student/educator roles and placement options across Australia.
