Module - Solid Organ Transplantation (SLS143)
Clinical experiential learning is the range of activities trainees may undertake in order to gain the experience and evidence to demonstrate their achievement of module competencies and assessments. The list is not definitive or mandatory, but training officers should ensure, as best training practice, that trainees gain as many of these clinical experiences as possible. They should be included in training plans, and once undertaken they should support the completion of module assessments and competencies within the e-portfolio.
Clinical experiential learning
- Actively participate in ward rounds and/or clinics at which patients are being worked up for or monitored following solid organ transplantation. Discussion and critical reflection of your experiences and the involvement of the laboratory in the management of patients.
- Actively participate in multidisciplinary review meetings at which laboratory results are presented as part of the clinical record in patients being worked up for living donor transplantation.
- Actively participate in multidisciplinary review meetings at which laboratory results are presented as part of the clinical record in patients being monitored following solid organ transplantation.
- Shadow clinical scientists performing on call laboratory and clinical assessments of potential recipients and donors for transplantation in the acute situation and discuss their experience of on-call.
- With permission talk to a patient and family and explore their experience of transplantation and critically reflect on your learning and how it will affect your future practice. (Whilst it is recognised that this experience may be difficult to arrange it is recommended that as far as possible, all trainees are given this opportunity to meet with a patient and their family)
- Observation of a living donor transplant procedure, including critical reflection on your experience and the impact it may have on your future role as a clinical scientist.
- Critically reflect on your own experience of supervision and mentoring and identify how you will use these in your learning training, supervising and mentoring of others.
