This guidance is aimed at identifying students who:
- May require support to achieve learning outcomes;
- Have pastoral issues;
- Have frequent reported absences.
The aim is to identify and pro-actively manage students
- To highlight any health issues which may require early intervention and support;
- To inform and support students who are not progressing towards successful completion of their learning outcomes;
- To promote professionalism.
- Students who are expected / suspected to receive a ‘u’ grade in any assessment should be highlighted asap to the Clinical Nurse Lecturer (CNL) via phone or e mail.
- CNL will e mail relevant students and request an appointment asap to discuss their progress and ensure appropriate remedial work is planned. Students will be clearly informed of the potential for a ‘u’ grade.
- Students will be referred to the Clinical Sub Dean as indicated
- All communication will be documented on MedSAS.
- Students with 3 or more absences (either authorised/unauthorised) within an eight week period will be referred to the Clinical Nurse Lecturer (CNL) for health surveillance interview.
- Wear Base Administrator to inform CNL of above students
- CNL will e-mail relevant students and request an appointment asap
- Students will be seen and if necessary referred to appropriate services (e.g. GP, Occupational Health, Clinical Sub Dean)
- A note will be entered onto MedSAS that students have been seen. Students will be informed of this and consent obtained and documented.
- If appropriate a ‘Cause for Concern’ form will be completed.
- Students will be seen after any subsequent absence, reviewed and referred from point 6
- Teaching Fellows can refer any students to the CNL where there is concern around health issues irrespective of any absence.
- If appropriate Teaching Fellows may choose to provide pastoral support for students themselves. However they should inform the CNL of this.
Students may self refer to the CNL if required.
