The big lesson to learn on placement is how to communicate with patients and colleagues.

This section provides some resources based around working with patients and translating learning to practice. The competencies addressed in this section are to make and communicate timely and accurate decisions, to gather information from a number of sources and adhere to best practice.

The placement settings are necessarily different for medicine, nursing and pharmacy and can involve remote groups learning together so we have resources on placement settings for pharmacy and how to use video conferencing to facilitate engagement with other colleagues and disciplines.
