Clinical Student Visits
Harbour Hospice is proactive in maintaining strong links with tertiary education providers and arrange undergraduate clinical student placements for Medical, Nursing and /Paramedic students. During their placement they will be supported to develop their knowledge and skills related to care of patients’ families/whanau who are living with a life limiting condition.
Students are encouraged to be involved in multi-disciplinary team meetings, community visits and to attend in-house multi-disciplinary teaching sessions. Students are also made aware of the importance of consent, privacy, dignity, compassion and confidentiality within the organisation, and in the delivery of individualised patient-centered care.
This was a really great placement. It gave me a good understanding of how the health professionals work together for all round care.
