Module - Introduction to Biomedical Prosthetics and Rehabilitation (SPE403)
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
- Observe the treatment of patients in a breast clinic and, with permission, talk to a patient about the care they have received, identify their positive and negative experiences, and reflect on the impact of this on your own professional practice and that of the services offered by your department.
- Attend a range of settings where patients are referred for rehabilitation and, taking two patients as case studies, critically reflect on how a structured, supportive rehabilitation programme can help patients requiring facial prostheses.
- Attend a meeting where the output from a research, innovation or service development project is being presented; identify your key learning and how you could use this in your future practice to improve services for patients.
