Source: Student Pathology Placement Evaluation
Feedback
A suggestion was made for the provision of additional information to be made available to Clinical Supervisors regarding supervision requirements.
Recommendation
A Supervisor Guide is being drafted to provide Clinical Placement Supervisors with guidance around expectations of supervisors and students whilst on placement.

Feedback
There was general satisfaction with placements.
Recommendation
An on-line form in SONIA has been implemented to allow students the opportunity to provide feedback on the placements as the Moodle ‘Have Your Say’ closes before many student have had an opportunity to complete the placement and provide feedback. This will allow students to provide feedback which can be used to improve aspects of the placements requiring improvement.
Action Taken
The feedback form is available to students in SONIA.
