Through our partnership with The University of Queensland (UQ) to integrate clinical care, education and training, and research at STARS, a broad range of clinical placements for UQ students in nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech pathology, audiology, nutrition and dietetics, clinical psychology, social work and rehabilitation medicine will be provided.
UQ students will be provided with access to a high standard of quality clinical exposure, and research will be driven by the needs of patients and clinicians, which will provide continual opportunities to improve clinical practices and procedures.
From 2021, UQ nursing students will be placed within the facility each year, with an expected 1200 nurses to complete placements over the course of the partnership.
There will also be a number of conjoint research positions for staff in the disciplines of nursing and allied health, in particular physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology and social work.
