Wellness Centre

Charles Sturt University’s Inaugural Community Engagement and Wellness Centre nears completion.

The new facility is a Community Engagement and Wellness Centre. It is an on-campus clinic that provides the students studying the various School of Community Health courses an opportunity to apply their newly developed coursework skills in an authentic clinical work environment dealing with real people with real issues.

An aim of the new centre is to move away from reactive medical treatment by encouraging “wellness” through prevention and intervention based services. Consequently the centre will have an innovative role in health care. Students will learn inter-professional competencies for collaborative team-based practice where clients can come to the centre to have their health identified and treated by a variety of health service professionals under the one roof. The services on offer include podiatry, physiotherapy, psychology, speech pathology and occupational therapy, amongst others.
