The quality review process is a risk-based approach and addresses regulatory requirements and adopts a formative approach to support the training placement providers to meet their obligation to provide a high level of education and training for their learners. For any intervention undertaken, clear reasoning is required to justify the use of a particular method of intervention and the following principles are considered:
- Is the method effective and efficient?
- Is it proportionate?
- Does it ensure a high quality, learning environment?
- Does it ensure patient safety?
- Does it add value?
- Does it have the learner as its focus?
There are five methods of review: -
- Urgent Concern Review
- Risk-based Review
- Multi-professional Review
- Programme or Thematic Review
- Monitoring the Learning Environment
The methods are supported by six practice approaches: -
- Learner/Educator meeting (on-site) visit
- Learner meeting (focus group)
- Educator meeting (Education Lead Conversation)
- Work programme meeting
- Intelligence gathering meeting
- Senior leader conversation
