Learning Objectives Overview

As the human population grows in size and healthcare demands increase, we have to adapt our allied health practices to support the function of the healthcare industry. The Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance is a professional accreditation that focuses on the role of workers who provide therapeutic and program related support to allied health professionals. Because this work requires support and judgement, our approach to teaching will prepare you to confidently identify client circumstances that need additional input from the allied health professional.
