National Guidelines for Clinical Placement Agreements are being developed by Health Workforce Australia (HWA). The Guidelines aim to assist individuals and their organisations who are involved in clinical education and training to develop new, or to review existing, clinical placement agreements.
This group includes education and training providers in the health sector, service providers who provide clinical placement opportunities, clinical supervisors, students and those involved in the administration and/or organisation of clinical placements.
The Guidelines are being developed as part of HWA's Clinical Supervision Support Program (CSSP). They align with the National Clinical Supervision Support Framework and address the three focus areas of the CSSP: Common areas that need to be considered in the development of or review of a clinical placement agreement are outlined in the Guidelines. They also provide leadership by detailing minimum essential requirements that should be included in all clinical placement
