- Quality patient care
- Skills in critical reflection and reflexivity

Learning from clinical experiences, rather than from formal teaching, is possibly the most important source of personal development and improvement for health professionals. Students in this subject will develop skills in critical reflection and reflexivity as it encourages them to consider alternative approaches to their practice. Students will be encouraged to examine strategies underpinned by theory to address personal or professional matters and to strive to achieve positive outcomes for both themselves and quality patient care.
