Seminar on “A Curriculum Model for Embedding Clinical Competencies in Specialty and Advanced Practice” Past Event
Specialty and advanced nursing practice knowledge exists within a rapidly changing and often highly technical environment. Accordingly, students and graduates of programs in specialty and advanced nursing practice are required to continually demonstrate and maintain competence in the delivery of safe, evidence-based patient care. It remains a challenge to education providers to assess and support specialty and advanced level competence. The School held a “Seminar on A Curriculum Model for Embedding Clinical Competencies in Specialty and Advanced Practice” on June 21, 2017, to present a curriculum model for developing and sustaining clinical competence in specialty and advanced practice and consider its relative strengths and limitations for education providers and professional practitioners. Professor Chia-Chin Lin, Acting Head of the School, welcomed the audiences and introduced the distinguished guest speaker, Dr Marie Gerdtz, Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Nursing, The University of Melbourne. The Seminar received positive feedbacks, and inspired many in the audience.
