Demonstrate the ability to apply clinical skills in a range of settings of increasing complexity.
Learning Outcomes :
At the end of this unit, and following a period of reflective practice, you will be able to:
- Apply these clinical skills to increasingly complex situations within practice
- Reflect upon the clinical skills you and others contribute to the provision of care. Identify your continuing learning needs in relation to clinical skill development;
- Demonstrate an evidence-based approach to your clinical skill development;
You will probably feel this is the area in which you want to learn the most - and you will as you progress through the first year of practice. To get the best out of this unit you should complete the Clinical Skills Development activity then have a follow up discussion with your mentor before progressing to further sections within this unit. This unit will not tell you how to carry out specific Clinical Skills, but will keep you on top of the skills you need to develop. You should also try to adopt good lifelong learning habits and record your identified learning needs your Flying Start portfolio, as this will provide excellent evidence as you progress throughout the year.
