This paper takes an interprofessional view ofthe types of scenarios allied health students,including those in speech pathology, mayencounter on placement. The paperhighlights that students are ethically awareand in some cases may experience ethicaldistress as a result of what they experienceon placement. Sometimes the cause of thisdistress is the behaviour of the clinicaleducator, who cannot therefore be a supportto the student in managing their ethicalconcerns. We suggest a structured approachto pre-placement preparation, support duringplacement, and post-placement for students,which provides a range of resources,personnel and educational strategies toassist them to develop their ethical reasoningand manage ethical concerns.
