Future actions and recommendations

The students’ section of the SCoR webpage will be updated, offering the following information:

  • a document for the students purpose

o   what  students can expect on clinical placement and

o   what is expected of students on clinical placement

o   case studies demonstrating the difference between critically analysing and rude, unnecessary bullying.

  • a flowchart identifying the pathway students should follow when they believe they are being subjected to bullying, whilst taking into account the policy of the HEI (including Samaritans contact number).
  • the requirement that when a course is subject to reaccreditation, the clinical placement will have at least one practice educator who has attended the practice educator’s scheme and received a formal qualification. Educators in Wales have to have achieved a qualification or they will not attain the required pay banding (The SCoR acknowledges this will take a number of years).

o   UK Council have submitted a motion at this year’s Annual Delegates Conference to enable this to take place.

  • the identification of three main areas that require in-depth work from all parties:

o   supporting students in a crisis

o   raising concerns on behalf of colleagues

o   encouraging and supporting managers to implement and change cultures.

  • The SCoR will hold a one day conference, working together with universities, clinical placement tutors and students to find a solution to bullying and harassment in the department.
