Invitation to Participate


Actual participation l.jpg

Actual Participation

  • 1 Manager

  • 10 Therapists (OT and Physiotherapists)

  • NO nurses !

  • Why?


Evaluation what went well l.jpg

Evaluation – What went well?

  • Overall APPS face to face meetings,seminars and events

  • Networking amongst Professionals both intra and inter !

  • Realisation that learning could be practically based

  • Students who didn’t think they were capable of Masters level study --realising that they were !

  • Giving them the confidence to go further to a full Masters degree.

  • People sorry it’s not continuing


Evaluation what did not go well l.jpg

Evaluation – What did not go well?

  • Students who didn’t have confidence in their own ability , and

  • We couldn’t manage to instil it

  • Initial teething problems with SMART house

  • Difficulty with people travelling from National destinations

  • Difficulty understanding reflection and Critical M level thinking

  • Tended to be operational/Basic degree level report style

  • Occasionally e mail let us down in tutoring


Student experiences l.jpg

Student Experiences

  • Very positive verbal feedback

  • Some students have said they didn’t realise how hard a Masters Unit was

  • Very sorry that Nurses didn’t engage in Masters although attended all APPS events

  • Many approaching to do it next year BUT

  • There is no next year as the MA is ending in its current format --seeking sponsors

  • Drs are now approaching --Sceptical initially ? No Psychologists engaged


What would we do differently next time l.jpg

What would we do differently next time ?

  • Work even harder to enthuse the nurses e.g. engage with the RCN not just Plastic Surgery professional Body

  • Seek more strong advocates from each professional group

  • Include Psychologists and Junior Doctors

  • Seek higher budget --it was on a shoe- string!

  • Have even more frequent national education events ( bi monthly)

  • Publish !


In summary l.jpg

In Summary

  • It worked! despite the low budget.

  • The team approach was essential and e-support invaluable

  • The students supported and learnt from each other over the Net

  • Paying attention to the robustness of the academic side throughout gave it validity

  • Recruiting professionally relevant experts to lead the learning process was very important for students

  • It would be great to be running it for another year to iron out the minor glitches,but

  • The Professional networking and confidence building alone were worth it
