In order to attend clinical practice placements you must be appropriately immunised against the diseases listed below.

What if I am infected or a carrier?

Should any of your results indicate that your immunisation levels are not adequate, you will need to discuss this further with your GP or the Student Health Services at ECU. Dependent upon the outcome of your discussion, a plan of treatment may be scheduled. The coordinator of clinical placements in your discipline will need to see evidence that you are fit for clinical practice.

Information about each disease type and their symptoms is available on the disease types web page.

Background checks

Before being permitted to attend clinical placements students must have lodged and completed requests for the appropriate background checks. Checks may take up to three months from lodgement to complete and should be submitted during the first week of semester.

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate checks completed for your discipline:

What are the consequences for me if something is identified on my clearances?

If information is disclosed by the WA Health or Department of Education and Training national criminal record check, National Police clearance or Working with Children Check, you will need to make an appointment to see your school's Coordinator for clinical practice regarding your pre-practicum preparation.

The coordinator is obliged to inform facilities where you may be scheduled to attend for clinical practice of any disclosure.

The clinical facility will determine if you can attend as scheduled. If you cannot attend, the co-ordinator will try to place you at another clinical facility however, this cannot be guaranteed.
