Griffith University, Queensland Health and industry stakeholders have updated the ClinEdAus website to provide ongoing, contemporary content to clinical educators who support student placements.
Established in 2014, ClinEdAus is an open access website that hosts evidence-based resources for allied health clinical educators and students in a wide range of workplace locations across Australia and internationally. Over the last twelve months, ClinEdAus has undergone a significant review to ensure it continues to meet the needs of its users, through the update of existing content and the inclusion of new, high quality resources.
Sponsors of the project Professor Andrea Bialocerkowski (Senior Project Lead, Learning and Teaching Initiatives, Griffith Health) and Liza-Jane McBride (Chief Allied Health Officer, Queensland Health) are excited about the updated website, its increasing use by clinical educators both locally and internationally and future plans to add new content on various practice areas.
“We know that we have users from all over Australia and overseas, and the recent updates will ensure maximum functionality for these users. It will continue to support the evolution of clinical placements in less ‘traditional’ placement settings, by the inclusion of contemporary content in a variety of practice contexts including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, aged care, private practice, mental health and rural and remote settings,” says Liza-Jane .
Andrea stated, “The website continues to address learning needs in core clinical education skills, and the pragmatic elements involved in preparing for and managing placements, with new links to online learning opportunities in clinical education”.
