AHP practice-based learning event


More than 70 people attended an Allied Health Professionals (AHP) learning event at Ninewells Hospital.

The event aimed to consider how more practice-based learning for AHPs could be offered in Tayside.

AHP students attended the event, alongside practice-based learning educators who support pre-registration students in practice, practice-based learning coordinators who link between the workplace and the university, AHP clinicians, team leads and managers.

Staff from Links Park Community Trust, Dundee Sport and Leisure and Capability Scotland also took part in the session to develop working relationships and plan how they can support the NHS in shared practice-based learning for AHP students.

Staff from Robert Gordon University, Napier University and Scottish Fire and Rescue also attended and gave presentations on the day.

New practice-based learning opportunities were identified during the event and 70 pledges of action were made.

AHP practice education and teaching lead Nicola Richardson said, “The Scottish Government recognises the need for increasing our future staff numbers to address recruitment issues and to enable us to step into advanced practice roles.

“We were delighted with the level of enthusiasm and engagement from staff and partners in Tayside, working together to plan new ways of working to increase our placement capacity.”
