Abstract:A survey was undertaken to identify emerging areas for practice placements as the first part of a three-phase project. Quantitative data pertaining to the number of non-traditional and role-emerging placements taking place were obtained. Qualitative data were gathered to identify the impetus for creating these types of placement, the ways that they were assessed and reviewed and their potential for further development.
The questionnaire was circulated to 27 practice placement tutors, 24 of whom responded. The data were anonymised. Twenty-one of the practice placement tutors stated that their higher education institutions offered placements outside the National Health Service or local authority services. Mental health settings were the largest provider of both non-traditional placements (29%) and role-emerging placements (37%). The survey generated detailed responses on the strengths and challenges of these placements and the majority of the participants were in favour of further development in this area.
