Course Introduction

Purpose of the course

Education is the cornerstone of the physiotherapy profession because ongoing development of the profession relies on quality clinical education which will ultimately improve the standard and quality of patient care. Therefore, it is necessary that clinicians who are in the position of a clinical educator, especially those relatively inexperienced with student education, be provided with an opportunity to engage in a comprehensive education program and be conscious of the essential skills required of an effective clinical educator.

This 2-day workshop was designed to provide opportunities for clinical educators and potential clinical educators to receive a standardised training to equip them with core skills and characteristics that will enable them to become quality clinical educators.
