The aim of the project was to provide a sustainable competency based clinical placement program for nutrition and dietetics students founded on education theory. Consultation was conducted with key stakeholders to identity the student and staff needs, barriers, resources and current practices in clinical placement programs. Based around the DAA competencies and university milestones, targeted learning activities were planned to enable students, through reflection and collaboration, to form connections between their prior theoretical knowledge and their current clinical experiences.
