Module - Respiratory and Sleep Science 2 (SPS127)
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
- Identify a patient with clinical indications requiring non-invasive ventilation and, with permission, meet and discuss the impact of NIV on the patient and their family, and reflect on your learning from this meeting.
- Attend a meeting at which the outcome of a clinical audit, research, innovation or service development is presented and discuss with your training supervisor how evidence-based practice is implemented with respect to respiratory and/or sleep investigations.
- Observe exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) procedures identifying common arrhythmias and artefacts.
- Attend chronic disease management clinics in primary care and discuss the role of primary care in the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory and/or sleep disorders and how to ensure effective communication between care providers.
- Observe a range of electroencephalogram (EEG) studies undertaken within neurophysiology and discuss the similarities and differences between the service provided by a neurophysiology and a respiratory and sleep service.
