The Challenges of Assessment and Documentation Update (Nursing only)
Wed 22 March 2017, 10:30 – 12:30 GMT
Practice Assessor Study Days for 2017.
Attendance at any event will be recorded and constitutes fulfilment of mandatory requirements. There are three types of update from Jan to December and mentors can attend any combination they require for their learning needs.
The documentation updates and the sign off workshops are for nurses only and the Inter-professional Introduction to OPAL/PEP/timesheets is for any profession.
- The “Challenges of Assessment and Documentation Update”
This workshop is for nurses to update themselves on the current nursing curriculum and Practice Assessment Tool which commenced September 2014. Through scenarios and group work it will explore the challenges faced when assessing students.
- The “ Inter-professional Introduction to OPAL/PEP/Timesheets and Assessment”
This inter professional workshop will be valuable to practice assessors who are new to using the on line Practice Assessment Tool (OPAL), the Practice Environment Profile system and electronic timesheets. It will give an introduction and overview of how to register onto the systems and their basic functions. This workshop will also explore assessment methods in practice through scenario based activities.
- The “Sign Off workshop”
This workshop is primarily for those wishing to gain sign off mentor status and also understand the roles and responsibilities of the sign off mentor. This is achieved by having the opportunity to complete two of the three sign off events required by the Nursing Midwifery Council (2010) through simulation, (The third has to be completed in practice).
