Behavioural stability is required to function and adapt effectively and safely in the role of a medical laboratory scientist, technician, or student.
- demonstrates behavioural stability to work effectively and safely in diverse and changing academic and professional environments.
- practices self-care consistent with professional expectations.
Justification of inherent requirement
Behavioural stability and adaptability are required to work individually and in teams in changing and unpredictable environments. Medical laboratory science students will be required to adapt their behaviour appropriately while on placement particularly during times of intense workload and in emergency situations.
- demonstrate situational awareness and adapt behaviour accordingly
- maintain respectful communication in times of increased stressors or workloads
- be receptive and respond professionally to constructive feedback
- attend professional placement in a physical and emotional state that is consistent with professional expectations
Adjustments must support stable, effective, and professional behaviour in both academic and clinical settings. Adjustments specific to the individual can be discussed with our Student Equity Officers.
