Student nurse placements often focus on healthcare settings at the expense of social care experiences. In response, the University of Chester has developed an innovative indirect practice supervision/assessment model, which supports the development of social care-focused practice placements. This model is delivered via self-sustaining funding, ensuring optimum support for students and the practice area, and has gained traction at Higher Education Institutions across the UK.
This #CRED talk showcases qualitative and quantitative outcomes from student focus groups in relation to this innovative model, and demonstrates its contribution to the future social care workforce.
This #CRED talk will bring you up to date with the latest practices in social care education and provision, and illustrate the value of educational approaches which take social care seriously.
We will be hearing from:
Chair: Dr. Kate H. Knight, Head of Division of Practice Education and Simulated Learning at the University of Chester
Kathy Valentine – Practice Education Facilitator Social Care University of Chester for Cheshire and Merseycare: to discuss regional approaches to supporting students to fully engage in social care placements – overcoming the hurdles.
Lucy O Driscoll, Charlie Carroll, and Trish Partridge – Practice Education Facilitator PIVO and Primary Care University of Chester for Cheshire and Merseyside – to discuss the experiences of opening and supporting placements for all healthcare learners.
Please join us in creating a credible platform for social care research education and debate #CREDTALKS.
