|Summary||Design and organisation of a Clinical Governance Project including data collection, analysis, write-up and local dissemination at an EDI-wide Clinical Governance Meeting. Additionally, the project will be prepared for either a verbal or poster presentation at a local or national speciality conference.
A Clinical Governance Project will be undertaken which will include the design, data collection, analysis, write-up and local dissemination at an EDI-wide Clinical Governance Meeting. The taught component of this course will be restricted to minimal use of lecture/seminar-format and particular emphasis will be placed on independent and autonomous academic study throughout the duration of the programme with appropriate tutor support and feedback.
The project will be prepared in written format, submitted six weeks prior to the assessment and will be marked independently by two examiners. The student will prepare a 10 minute presentation in the format of either a poster or verbal presentation which would be suitable for acceptance at a national- or international speciality conference. This will be followed by a 10 minute structured oral assessment on both the written and verbal presentation and will be assessed by the same two examiners who graded the written review.
