Content

The Graduate Diploma, Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Occupational Health) programme focuses on the principles underpinning specialist occupational health practice, practice leadership and practice development. On completion of this programme students will have developed a significant range of new knowledge and understanding and also the skills needed for contemporary occupational health practice.

In practice these specialist practitioners are frequently faced with unpredictable and complex situations which often require enhanced problem solving skills sometimes in the absence of incomplete information. In many cases students will be able to respond to these challenges autonomously, demonstrating initiative, professional accountability and safe practice.
