Abstract

This chapter describes the uptake of the Dedicated Education Unit in Canberra, Australia, based on the Flinders University model. The authors provide brief background information about Canberra and the University of Canberra undergraduate nursing curriculum before describing the curriculum redesign required for uptake of the Dedicated Education Unit, key Dedicated Education Unit roles and responsibilities, key assumptions about students in the Dedicated Education Unit context, supports for student learning, engaging clinicians in the learning culture, activities used to promote learning, assessment strategies and different clinical settings for specific Dedicated Education Units. They then shift the focus to evaluation of current Canberra Dedicated Education Units and reflect on the challenges facing Dedicated Education Units, such as the need for ongoing revision of, and engagement with, this clinical education model, and administration. The chapter ends with considerations about the further development of Dedicated Education Units and research possibilities within them.
