Placement Visit Opportunities


Whilst on placement we like to encourage our learners to spend time with other professionals or specialists in their field. This is to enhance the overall learning experience and gain a deeper understanding of holistic patient care and Multidisciplinary Team working. 

Learner Guidance
  • The learning opportunities on your placement can be enhanced by experiencing relevant services and departments for the patient care pathway.
  • Placement visits would ideally be undertaken in the latter part of your placement.
  • You must agree all placement visits with your Practice Assessor or Practice Supervisor.
  • These visits must be aligned with your learning outcomes.
  • It is your responsibility to liaise with your Practice Assessor or Practice Supervisor and the Placement Visit area to organise a suitable time /date for your visit.
  • If for any reason you are unable to attend you must inform your ward manager and the placement visit area and let them know.
Practice Assessor and Practice Supervisor (PA/S) Guidance
  • Discuss placement visits with your learner early in their placement to ensure that there is sufficient time for visits to be organised.
  • Ensure that there are agreed learning outcomes for the visits.
  • Consider that there are opportunities for your student to work with AHPs in your own clinical area too.
  • Learner visits do not have to be full days but do need to be agreed in advance.
  • It is essential that the clinical area has a record of where the student is, when on placement visits.
  • It is the learners responsibility to arrange these visits.
  • As the PA/S it is your role to ensure that these visits are suitable and meaningful to support their placement.
