Summary "This attractive workbook provides a wealth of tools and 'top tips' for students of health and social care struggling to survive the demands of 21st century practice placements. The authors artfully distil their knowledge, experience and expertise in placement learning in order to accompany the student on their journey from novice to qualified professional"--Stephanie Hobson, Head of Practice Education, Oxford Brookes University. 'I found the text to be set at a good level for new students of nursing, allied health and social care especially for the early placements in their programme of study. In an easy and engaging style the book offer a range of useful tools to helps students make the most and get the best from their placement experiences. I would be happy to recommend this to students on a range of courses' - George Bell, Northumbria University, UK. As students in health and social care professions, you will spend up to half of your time out on placement. This accessible and practical book is designed to help you make the most of this invaluable learning experience and is suitable for use in all areas of practice, whether you are training to be a nurse, midwife, occupational therapist, social worker or physiotherapist. In student friendly language it covers all the main areas of placement learning, including: Developing a learning contract; reflective practice; using supervision; managing time; evidence-based practice; capturing your learning in a personal and professional portfolio; and, failing placements. This book of highly practical chapters provides reflection exercises, questions, tests, ideas and tools to use on your placement, case studies to read and practical tips throughout to help you achieve your best on placement, in whatever area of practice you are in.
