COVID Safety

General Overview

Firstly, you will need a camera.  The one on your phone is fine. 

 

You will then need access to a video sharing platform.  Most students use YouTube, but you can use any that allow you to provide a link that you can copy and paste into the assessment. (How to upload a video to YouTube)

 

You will need clients, you'll need 1 to 3 people depending on the assessment, see below for details on the specific assessment requirements. 

 

You will need equipment.  This is all outlined within the practical assessment manual instructions, see below for details on the specific assessment requirements.

 

Video Submission Options

We recognise that some students may not be in a position to meet all of the assessment requirements, especially meeting the equipment or participant requirements. To simplify the process we have two video submission options:

 

Option 1 - Submit the assessments that have the least equipment and participant requirements, then come on campus for a 1 day practical assessment when able.

 

Option 2 - Submit all of the video assessments and students wont need to come on campus to complete a practical assessment.

Completing your video in a COVID Safe fashion

 

Students should check the current advice from the Department of Health before undertaking their practical via video. Students should use social distancing as much as possible, and should only touch a participant when needed, such as when taking blood pressure or girth measurements. Equipment should be sanitised in-between uses Here are some other general tips:

  • Good hygiene
    Good hygiene includes washing your hands, covering your coughs and cleaning your equipment.
  • Physical distancing
    Maintain at least 1.5m between you and your client at all times unless you're required to complete an assessment that requires close contact.
  • Masks
    Wearing a mask can help protect you and those around you if you, face masks should be worn when ever possible, especially when social distancing can't be maintained.
