Service-learning placements

Activity: Academic engagement & professional developmentContent creation/delivery

Description

This year, Three Rivers was able to design and deliver service-learning placements focused on falls risk assessment, the Be Well Program, Elders' exercise groups, children's play groups, and health checks for First Nations high school students in collaboration with several communities and rural ACCHOs. Designing and coordinating these placements necessitates strong partnerships with a variety of stakeholders, and we are grateful for the cultural, clinical, and local knowledge that Aboriginal Elders, ACCHO staff, health professionals, community representatives, and other partner organisations have shared with us.
We are proud to work with our rural communities to provide these placements and provide health students with learning relevant to their cultural, professional, and personal identities. Rural placements are also a great way to showcase communities as potential locations for future employment.
