Standards and Guidelines

 

OT Standards and Guidelines

Practice Placement Preparation and Evaluation

In response to the needs of new practice educators the Clinical Learning Environment Team in Norfolk have worked with faculty and staff from UEA to develop a checklist for practice educators who take students on placement. This checklist is available to adapt to each placement area and gives guidance on a welcome letter for students, induction processes and suggestions for preparing to take students on clinical placement.

Checklist (Word)

Visiting Policy

There are three types of visit:

  1. Virtual visits facilitated via e-mail, telephone or FaceTime / Skype (if available) at the half way stage.
  2. Group visits where several students on placement in close proximity can meet a visiting UEA tutor (suitable venue pending). Educators will send an email summary of their students progress ahead of this meeting. Follow up discussions will be undertaken if required. 
  3. Visits in person (face to face)

Student ID on Placement

Students are expected to follow departmental procedure regarding identity whilst on placement.  They are issued with a name badge and a plastic card holder which takes their UEA identity card.  

Student Visits whilst on Placement

Is your student going to spend time with other health care professionals?  This form has been designed by a therapist.  The form enables other members of the team to record observations / comments on the visit to feedback to the student's educator.
