Module overview

This module will enable you to develop the basic clinical knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and behaviours required of your first stage of clinical training in audiology, including those required for audiology assistant and Hearing Care Assistant (HCA) roles. This module is carefully coordinated with the other modules in Part 1 such that you will be able to register with the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists as an HCA on successful completion of Part 1. For example, it provides a discipline-specific context for your introduction to healthcare services in Introduction to Professional Practice and helps prepare you for Audiology Clinical Placement 1. Three key themes of this module are integration of theory with practice, a strong foundation in patient-centred communication and care, and employability. The module consists of a series of compulsory small-group practical sessions associated with lectures.
