Students are required to:
Identify an aspect of preceptoring, for example clinical supervision, advocacy, reflective practice, intrapersonal and interpersonal challenges are some examples.
To complete this task you will need to read Chapters 1- 4 of the set text, Morton-Cooper & Palmer (2000), review additional research and theoretical literature around this topic and outline your understanding of the different approaches to preceptorship that can be taken. It is important that you should evaluate the relevance of the literature to your own practice area based on your own professional practice experience. Using published evidence and your own experiences, outline a detailed strategic approach to justify your own preferred approach and make recommendations for implementation into your practice setting.
Approximately 50% of the final submission should be the exploration of the concept and 50% the description and justification of your preferred approach.
The task will be assessed against the following criteria and the Grading Rubric (See Resources on Learnline)
Demonstration of your comprehension of the concept of preceptoring
Comparison of the merits and limitations of particular approaches
Description and justification for your preferred approach to your practice context
Use of evidence in the justification of selected approach
Insight into potential risks and limitations of your preferred approach
All components of the Grading Rubric. You are encouraged to use the rubric to self-assess before you submit your assignment and to identify the feedback you would like to assist you with the resubmission in the portfolio.
