In all health professions, students are required to spend a certain number of hours in a healthcare setting working within their discipline-specific profession. This requirement is essential to becoming a competent health professional and practitioner. Clinical and Fieldwork Placement in theHealth Professions, Second Edition, helps to prepare students for their work in clinical and fieldwork settings. The text is divided into three parts. Part 1 Issues for Practice presents information that is important for students and supervisors to know - regardless of the clinical setting. This includes how to get the most out of your fieldwork, working in teams and how to prepare for placement. Part 2Contexts of Practice explores various clinical settings (i.e. working with mothers and babies, working in acute care, working in mental health) and guides the student through what to prepare for, what to expect and issues that would be helpful to be aware of during placement. Part 3 Transition toPractice provides information on the transition from student to fieldwork educator and on some of the issues involved in supervision of a student. This second edition continues to encourage multidisciplinary practice, reinforcing that the key to good health practice is to have all health professionals working together successfully with shared skills in reflective practice, and engaging clients in care and ethical practice. New to this editionare chapters on "Working in Palliative Care" and "Becoming a Reflective Practitioner", more detail on the competency standards for students on placement, and new pedagogical features - "Supervisor Profiles" to help students prepare for clinical placements in various settings, and "PortfolioDevelopment Exercises" to help shape a students' professional practice portfolio.
