A 2000 word (maximum) essay:
The precise topic of this issue can be negotiated according to the interests that have emerged from your reading in this subject.
you may wish to explore a practice issue raised in Module 3, or negotiate a topic on a theme such as mental health care, pastoral / spiritual care, suffering, hope, prayer and / or the role of health care practitioners with regard to spirituality and palliative care (e.g., the role of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, audiologists, social workers, chaplains, etc).
A high standard of essay writing is expected with accurate referencing. ASSESSMENT CRITERIA In each piece of work for assessment we will be looking for reflective, critical, socially-informed treatments of the topic or theme.
This might include: (i) reference to relevant literature – personal accounts, media resources, clinical studies, professional practice accounts, social or cultural studies; (ii) recommendations of alternative or further material on your topic that would be of value for clients and/or workers; (iii) critical assessment of these sources, with particular attention to social and public health concerns; (iv) some discussion of your personal engagement with the topic or theme; (v) application of your findings to your professional practice and/or personal formation. The balance between these requirements will vary with each task, but all should be present in each task
