Using simulation to test use of coaching in clinical placements

JA Leigh, LJ Littlewood, K Heggs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (journal)peer-review


Clinical placement providers and higher education institutions in Greater Manchester are working on a new model of clinical placements, based on the University of East Anglia?s Collaborative Learning in Practice model. The GM Synergy Project placement model uses coaching methods to equip students with high-quality clinical and leadership skills. Before the model was implemented, a simulation involving students, academics and health professionals explored how it would work in practice. This article describes the background of, and rationale for, the new model and reflects on the outcomes of the simulation.
