Abstract

Peer observation is endorsed by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as an example of a work-based learning activity that is suitable for continuing professional development. It was originally advocated as a means of monitoring and improving the quality of teaching within higher education but has equal relevance for those working in the health and care professions.

The objective of peer observation is to identify strengths and development needs, and to devise an action plan for further improvement. Beneficial to the observed and observer, it can be a useful tool for clinicians, educators, managers and those involved in research. The process can help to eliminate ritualistic practice, direct self-development and to support the delivery of a safe, effective and high quality service.

The aim of this workshop is to encourage participants to consider some of the practical issues that surround the implementation of peer observation within their own practice setting including the involvement of service users and colleagues from other professions. Participants will also review a peer observation framework that could be used to enhance service quality and support continuing professional development.
