Content
This is the fourth of four units in the Scholarly Activity (Service Learning): Aboriginal Health stream. In this unit, students undertake a range of activities including providing ongoing service within their placement organisation; evaluating the impact of their role on the service, considering the facilitators and barriers to achieving community organisation priorities, and providing an effective written and oral handover to facilitate continuity of service.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) demonstrate the ability to effectively evaluate the contribution they have made during their placement with an Aboriginal community health or health-related organisation; (2) demonstrate the reciprocal learning that the student has gained from their placement; (3) provide effective written and oral handover to the community organisation or the community the organisation is connected with; (4) provide effective written and oral handover to enable effective continuity of service for a student about to commence a placement with the community organisation; and (5) reflect in writing on the learning and the utility of their placement experience and how the experience will influence their future roles and ways of working in healthcare service delivery.
Assessment
This comprises continuous assessment through host organisation evaluation, a summative written portfolio and a seminar presentation. There are no unit examinations.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
