The National Health Service (NHS) Plan [Department of Health, 2000. The NHS Plan: A Plan for Investment, a Plan for Reform, The Stationery Office, London] set out an ambitious programme of growth for the number of students undertaking health professional education programmes. To meet this demand there is a growing and widely acknowledged need to increase the number of clinical placements needed by these students. This paper outlines the findings from a regional project that aimed to map the current pattern and availability of clinical placements for healthcare students by the collection of quantitative placement data (such as location, specialty, and number of mentors) as well as in-depth interviews with Clinical Placement Managers (CPMs)...

Substantial national attention is being directed at enhancing the competency levels of early careerists in healthcare management. In this study, we examined preceptors' ratings of administrative resident/fellow competencies in multiple domains, and we compared those to our previous results of self-rated competency by residents/fellows. In this national sample of preceptors (n=61) of administrative residency/fellowship program listed with the American College of Healthcare Executives, competency in the information management domain was ranked highest, with more than half of preceptors (55...

The purpose of this research was to identify the mentoring and executive competencies required among preceptors of the Army-Baylor University Graduate Program in Health and Business Administration, and to specify the requisite skills, knowledge, and abilities (SKAs) needed to achieve those competencies. In the first wave of inquiry, a list of 123 competencies and associated SKAs was elicited from a network of 80 current and past preceptor executives employing a Delphi methodology using e-mail. An expert panel, which consisted of seven past program directors, examined and sorted the list into four preceptor content domains, viz...

METHODS: We conducted an observational study of 1,419 third-year students at the University of Iowa taking a required family medicine preceptorship during 9 academic years: 1994-1995 to 2002-2003...

AIM AND OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the present study was to design a preceptorship programme and to evaluate its effects on turnover rate, turnover cost, quality of care and professional development. BACKGROUND: A high turnover rate of nurses is a common global problem. How to improve nurses' willingness to stay in their jobs and reduce the high turnover rate has become a focus. Well-designed preceptorship programmes could possibly decrease turnover rates and improve professional development...
April 2009: Journal of Clinical Nursing
David Gurchiek
Clinical teaching has been one of the most important but problematic areas of professional education.10 Clinical knowledge rarely corresponds with the theoretical knowledge that students acquire in the classroom and lab setting, contributing to a theory-practice gap for the patient care provider. This gap leads to the difficulty and disillusionment experienced by students during their field internship. To assist students with transitioning to the prehospital environment, paramedic preceptors are a necessity...
