Blank clinical reference form

I was wondering if anyone had a copy of a blank clinical reference form? My supervisor wants to look over the questions and I can't find my copy of the reference for last year.

Re: PWP person specification question

It's worth remembering that you don't have to nail the criteria perfectly, so if you haven't worked with patients clinically before or worked to specific outcome measures you can generalise other experience. The essential point they want to know is that you are able to work within a specific framewo...

Re: To apply or not to apply?

There is never any harm in applying, beyond the application fee (and some stress) but there are quite a few practical benefits.

Re: Getting relevant experience for a Dclin without prior ex

In my experience one of the most common routes for gaining relevant experience is support worker/nursing assistant roles. I'd argue that these roles can be amongst the most useful experience you can gain as it gives you first hand knowledge of the difficulties that individual's supported by the heal...

Previously I have had to write a brief summary of a case I have worked on (formulation, treatment plan etc.), give a presentation on a topic and a thinking exercise based on an article (how it would affect practic...
