Clinical Education 5

Module Overview

You will have an identified clinical educator within a health care setting where you will have the opportunity to use and develop clinical knowledge and skills acquired during the previous modules. You should have the opportunity to identify learning needs from previous clinical experiences and attempt to address these needs within a different health care situation. The opportunity will exist to learn new profession-specific skills and to acquire new knowledge.
