The clinical environment has a stated philosophy of care which can be found at the entrance of the ward. All care in these acute clinical settings is given on the researched base evidence, care that is relevant to individual needs. Interpersonal and practice development skills are fostered through arrangement of teaching and learning methods. The medical Staff is encouraged to participate in continuing professional development based on identified learning needs and appraisal. Students are allowed to participate in multidisciplinary meetings and multi professional working together as a team. Students are supported by link tutors on the ward and are given effective and accurate feedback and they are also encouraged. Students are allowed to put theory to practice when they come to the ward by given care to acute ill patients with various types of disease and illnesses. When the students come to the ward environment they are orientated, they are given briefing on health and safety on the work place, evacuation policies in case of emergency, they are shown the assemble point in case of fire, how to use the crash call when necessary, how to put call out using by dialling 222 which they are they are shown the backup telephone in case of electricity outage. They are taught safe disposal. They are given initial interview agreed and sign to the learning outcome. Their learning needs and achievements are regularly reviewed. They are allowed to work with other senior staff build relationships and hold discussions with them relating to issues within the learning in the learning environment. The supervisor observes me working with the student and give me individual feedback in a confidential manner. Clinical staff are not given time during the working ours to update their knowledge this is done on a personal basis in their own time or during the allocated study days. Link tutors has set date and times when they come to the ward and meet with the students on a one to one as well as in groups. I believe that six weeks was a long enough time for the student to develop effective clinical skills and competencies within her league. Assessment and evaluation are carried out accordingly and where necessary time is given for continuous learning to take place.
