This unit takes an experiential approach to synthesise your knowledge of health care systems and skills of investigation and analysis of complex information, problems to contribute to professional practice and scholarship. This unit involves placement in a health service or health policy organisation and the planning and execution of a substantial research-based project or equivalent capstone experience. Students will be expected to volunteer to work within the service during the period of the internship. QUT staff will provide every endeavour to locate a suitable placement. Students may arrange their own placement although the placement should ideally be an institution different from one where the student may be normally employed. The placement may be undertaken with the employer of the student, provided that a clearly defined different experience is involved to that which is the normal employment of the student.
Based in a workplace, this unit takes an experiential approach to synthesise your knowledge of health care systems with your skills of investigation and analysis of complex information to contribute to professional practice and scholarship. This unit involves the planning and execution of a substantial work-based research project or equivalent capstone experience, by applying the principles and concepts studied across the course into the real world of health services delivery and health policy. A capstone unit is a point of transition for students, and prompts reflection and coherence to the whole course experience.
Situated in the workplace, this capstone unit aims at enabling the authentic synthesis of your knowledge of the complex, diverse and challenging nature of health management across the broad scope of health and health service delivery, and to further your development of the professional skills, competencies and attributes required to respond to the changing needs of Australasian health systems as leading senior managers and executives.
Completion of this unit requires you to provide evidence of having achieved the following learning outcomes:
1. Research and critically analyse a complex work-based healthcare problem to discern risk and benefits
2. Plan, design and implement a negotiated significant work-based program or project
3. Engage and facilitate timely and appropriate consultation around key issues through a variety of mechanisms
4. Communicate with stakeholders within and outside the internship organisation
5. Exercise leadership, self-management, ethical behaviour and reflection in action in the conduct of your internship
The focus of this particular unit will include:
- Performance monitoring and reporting
- Timeliness and meeting specified targets
- Team work
- Written and oral communication skills and in particular the ability to communicate complex concepts
This unit will be undertaken within the workplace of a health service or health policy organisation. Each student will negotiate identified practical outcomes. An industry supervisor will be identified for each student who will provide feedback during the internship and will provide an assessment on completion.
QUT is committed to maintaining high academic standards to protect the value of its qualifications. To assist you in assuring the academic integrity of your assessment you are encouraged to make use of the support materials and services available to help you consider and check your assessment items. Important information about the university's approach to academic integrity of assessment is on your unit Blackboard site.
A breach of academic integrity is regarded as Student Misconduct and can lead to the imposition of penalties.
No particular materials are required for this unit.
Travel to the site of the placement may be required and will be at the student's expense. There may be uniform requirements in some circumstances. As a general rule if uniforms are required they may be provided by the host institution. However this will be subject to individual negotiation prior to accepting the placement.
The risks of this unit will be those associated with the particular placement and these would be identified prior to accepting any particular placement. There may well be normal risks associated with transport to the site of the placement and normal office risks. Substantial computer-based work will be required. You should ensure that you take regular rest breaks when engaging in prolonged computer-based work.
