Abstract

To ensure optimal clinical learning environments for students in the medical and allied health professions, it is essential to establish robust quality processes. Within the HEALINT4ALL ERASMUS + project an evidence-based protocol to assess the quality of placements for Medicine and Allied Health Professions (AHPs) in clinical environments created. While the existence of a protocol itself is useful, its application can be proved difficult, as relevant forms and audit processes should be established. Audit of clinical placements is time demanding process in an already busy healthcare setting, while exchange of audits between higher education institutions (HEI) and HEI and clinical placements may be lengthy due to internal forms and processes. Thus, a digital interactive platform for European and national placements audit following a user-centered design created. Stakeholders’ workshops and an iterative evaluation process ensured the usability and acceptability of the platform, complemented by Nielsen’s heuristic evaluation within a group of experts in education technology or quality assurance of placement. The proposed platform supports a globally prepared medical and AHPs international workforce able to transfer skills and practice and offer best interventions to enhance patient treatment, by providing a more effective process and faster appraisal of clinical environments.
