NTDC5518 Clinical Practice One
NTDC5518 Clinical Practice Two Summative Assignment Personal Development Portfolio
As a nutritional therapist it is an obligatory requirement that you engage in reflective practice through portfolios in order to acquire accreditation. Your PDP will help demonstrate the development of your learning and professional skills during the nutritional therapy course and will provide evidence that you have met relevant National Occupational Standards. In year one you were introduced to the concept of reflective practice and learning plans. In year two we require you to create a clinical skills-focused portfolio as an assessment piece that will contribute to your year two grade. As we believe that a Personal Development Portfolio is a personal document, the format for your PDP in year two is quite flexible; however there are certain documents that must be met in order to enable you to progress into year 3. These documents are outlined below. You must submit your PDP via Turnitin in the normal way. Please read the following guidelines carefully. They provide an indication of which items of coursework and reflective practice you should incorporate. Please complete your PDP in the order given according to the tick list below. All documents on the tick list must be present in order to pass the assessment.
Personal Portfolio submission tick list Contents page Section A – Professional / Clinical Development
1. Observing in Training Clinic & reflective response to Training Clinic observations (200 words +/- 10%)
2. Reflective response to your experience of Clinical Practice One (200 words +/-10%)
3. Reflective account of the therapeutic relationship within the role play setting (1000 words +/- 10%).
4. Summary of preparation required for Year Three Clinical Practice (200 words +/-10%) Goals and action points emerging from these reflective pieces must feed into your Learning Plan in Section C
Section B – Learning Plan Following on from your reflective pieces, your learning plan should be updated with no more than four goals that emerge from your experience of the Clinical Practice module, demonstrating preparation for entering into Training Clinic. Underneath your newly created goals you should also add new SMART action points. When action points are completed a short line of reflection should feature below them and include the formation of a new action point if relevant. Section C – Clinic starter pack
1. One or two examples of referenced handouts to be given to clients
2. BANT Membership certificate (can be anonymised if you prefer) 3. Explanation (400 words +/- 10%) (non-referenced) with supporting paperwork Section A – Professional / Clinical Development Use the following questions as to guide you through the reflection in section A:
1. Observing in Training Clinic (completed peer evaluation forms are optional) & reflective response to Training Clinic observation (200 words +/1 10%) How did you find the experience of attending Training Clinic as an observer? Did any aspects of the experience challenge you? Which part of the Training Clinic process had the most impact on you? How do you feel about entering Training Clinic as a result of this experience & is there anything you can do to help prepare? In the light of what you have observed, what do you want to bring to the consultation as a trainee practitioner? Where relevant, feed these points through into your learning plan.
2. Reflective response to Clinical Practice One (200 words +/-10%) How did you feel going into Clinical Practice One? What elements of role play practice have you enjoyed, and which areas have made you feel challenged or nervous? What are your strengths and areas to work on within the clinical role play setting? How has the experience of clinical role play helped you to reflect on your experience either as a client or an observer in Training Clinic? What would you like to have achieved by the end of the module? Where relevant, feed these points through into your learning plan.
3. Reflective account of the therapeutic relationship within the role play setting (1000 words +/- 10%). Weighting: 60% Provide a reflective account of one of your role play cases so far. Think about the therapeutic encounter and relevant theoretical models or theories that you have learnt about via the module teaching, and via your own independent reading. Consider Johns’ Model, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, Transactional Analysis – ego states, drivers and scripts, drama triangle, types of interventions, beliefs, and unconscious processes. Consider any issues of power, autonomy, and consent. What did you want to achieve? How were you feeling? What were your emotions? What observations did you make of the encounter/the outcome/your part in it? What questions do these raise for you and how would you answer them? What was good about the experience? What didn’t go so well? What else could you have done? What have you learned about your practice/self? How will your learning inform future practice? Reflection and learning is demonstrated by the observations made, and how this will inform future practice. Use of relevant theoretical models or theories applied to support these. Excellent reflective practice includes depth of analysis, moving away from descriptive to go deeper into why behaviours and feelings occurred – to consider who you are and how this translates into your skills as a therapist. See the CP1 reading list and related lectures and e-units to get you started. Complete and accurate Harvard referencing, written using academic language. The reference list can be included at the end of your PDP. 4. Summary of preparation required for Year Three Clinical Practice (200 words +/-10%) Use the following questions as to guide you through the reflection: Drawing to the end of your Clinical Practice One module, how have you found the process of learning consultation skills? Which elements meant a steep learning curve for you and why? What areas for development have you identified for entering into Training Clinic in Year Three, and how are you planning to achieve these? What are your areas to prioritise for development when you sit down at your first consultation? Feed these points through into your learning plan. Section B – Learning Plan Weighting: 35% Next, draw up your goals as a result of your reflective pieces within Section A. It is important to update your Goals and Action Points as you progress on the course. The learning plan can be presented as a table. Your goals should include any areas for improvement you identified in your reflective pieces. Remember, goals are aims that are realistic and achievable. They should focus on the skills required to improve your performance on the course and may take several months or more to achieve. Once you have drawn up your goals, you should plan some action points to follow in order to make progress towards your goals. Action points must be SMART. NTDC5518 Clinical Practice One Implementing your Learning Plan You should always keep in mind your goals. When you have carried out action points, record the date completed. Include as an appendix to your portfolio any evidence that you are implementing your action points and moving towards the achievement of your goals. The evidence may be examples of work you have done on the course, feedback sheets from your tutor or reflective accounts of situations you find yourself in either on the course or during extra-curricular activities. After submission you should still use your portfolio to guide your learning going forwards. Reflecting on your Learning Plan When you record outcomes of action points, try to reflect on your progress. What have you learnt from targeting these skills? What can you do to help progress further? As a result, you may need to make new action points to further your learning and development and continue working towards your goals (cycle of learning). Record your reflection and these new action points within the Learning Plan. Section C – Clinic starter pack Handouts and the explanation that are required for inclusion at this point will be completed during workshop activities or in preparation for role play clients. Please note that the inclusion of your BANT certificate means that the PDP is not anonymous (but please still use your student number when uploading to Turnitin). If you are concerned about lack of anonymity, you can remove your name from the certificate and any other means of identification. Your explanation should be a written piece with additional supporting diagrams or handouts. This is for the practitioner eyes only and does not need to be referenced (although you could include sources that you find helpful for future reference). You are encouraged to work in groups or pairs on your explanations, and share them with each other to build up a useful set of resources as a group. You are welcome to use an explanation as the basis for a client hand-out. Your hand-outs are for the client and should be referenced using high quality sources. As well as an explanation, they should include general health advice. Again you are welcome to work on these in groups or pairs and share between you to build you resources. Any similarity matches between students on Turnitin regarding explanations or hand-outs will be overlooked (unless the sources are external ie. websites whereby the plagiarism rules remain the same). Please note Reflective practice is shown to be beneficial on many levels, but at times it may bring up difficult emotions or realisations. On the rare occasion that a marker becomes concerned for a student’s wellbeing while assessing the PDP, they will contact the module leader (providing the student number only). The module leader may then contact the student to offer support. At ION we also offer pastoral support from the year leader and our academic support tutor. If you feel you have been affected by any of the reflection during this assessment, please contact us or an external support source such as a counsellor.
