Supporting health students in the workplace

Welcome to Supporting Health Students in the Workplace.

Video transcript


Welcome to the supporting students in workplace website. This has been a collaboration between the Tasmanian Clinical Education Network (TCEN) and the University of Tasmania (UTAS). Together we have worked to put together some resources that you need - for your role as a clinical supervisor when looking after healthcare students. The website has five main areas:

  1. Learning and teaching in the health care setting.

    In this we explore ways that you can actually set a student’s placement up for success rather than failure.  As we often watch students flounder. This gives you some strategies for students when they first arrive in your workplace.
  2. Cultural and language considerations. 

    This part of the website contains lots of little vignettes that help you explore how to actually have conversations with people from other languages or from different backgrounds to yourself. There is also a larger section with a video from the supporting students in the workplace workshop we run.
  3. Clinical reasoning cycle.

    A relatively new concept to some disciplines, but to others it has been ingrained in their training for a number of years. This part of the website contains different video clips and information relating to the clinical reasoning cycle and how to actually apply it when you have students in your workplace.
  4. Achieving the best outcomes by giving feedback well.

    This is pivotal to the success of a student in the placement setting and there are a series of little video clips in this area that will help you progress a student and give them feedback in a confident way that will help support them during their placement with you.
  5. Frequently asked questions.  

    Sometimes the question that you have has already been asked. We have posted these up there so it may help you explore the different areas relating to supporting students when they come to you. We encourage you to investigate all the different areas of the website, tease out the areas that you have enjoyed and post those on to the frequently asked questions section of the website so they will help guide others to areas that are of use.
