Why do I need to complete an evaluation of each clinical area I have been allocated to?
Your evaluations are important to us and to the Healthcare Organisation. To be assured of the quality of your practice learning experience both the University and Placement Provider need to know that you have observed and participated in care that has been of a high quality. To continue to improve the quality of the practice learning environment for students we need to know:
How well you have been supported in practice
Were you able to achieve your learning outcomes?
Was your mentor a positive role model?
Was patient care of a high standard?
What ideas and suggestions do you have to help enhance the learning environment?
What happens to my completed practice evaluations?
All Healthcare Organisations meet every 2 months with the relevant Education Champion/ link team from Anglia Ruskin University to review all student and mentor evaluations. These meetings are called Practice Education Committee meetings and they all follow a standard agenda and the minutes are shared by both the University and Placement Provider.
At these meetings an action plan is developed to respond to any student concerns or suggestions from students.
Are my end of placement evaluations anonymous?
These evaluations are anonymous and you will not be asked for identification details when completing them.
It is important that you feel able to make comments or suggestions freely.
How do I know if my evaluative comments have been fed back to the clinical area?
After each 2 monthly Practice Education Committee meetings all student evaluations are distributed to the clinical area. You can ask to see previous student evaluations on each clinical area you have been allocated to see previous student experiences
You are also invited to contact the relevant Education Champion for feedback on the actions taken in response to your evaluation
