All students commencing placement will have been sent a roster indicating where and when orientation will commence and which area you will be working in.


All students MUST submit a current Police Check at least one week prior to placement.  You are also required to submit your Working with Children Check as you may be in regular, direct or unsupervised contact with children during your placement.  The Police Check and Working with Children Check must be dated within 12 months of estimated completion of clinical placement at GSHS.


Failure to submit the above documents one week prior to your placement may result in your placement being suspended until you can produce such documentation.


If you have attended placement at GSHS before, you are required to re-read the material and complete and sign the Student Orientation Checklist.  If the previous placement was more than 12 months ago all forms, including the Police Check, will need to be re-submitted.


The confidentiality agreement and the hand hygiene package are only required to be completed once every 12 months however, you still need to submit them for each placement one week prior to your commencement. All other documentation and medication calculations (if applicable) need to be completed each placement.


Please make sure you read all the information following and complete and submit the required forms.


If you have any queries regarding this online orientation package please contact us. We look forward to seeing you on placement.
