Abstract

This chapter explores the future of practice learning, applying the core concepts of a learning organisation to promote excellence (quality and governance); it therefore looks at the whole picture, considering strategies that enable creative thinking around innovative student learning experiences. Explored is the application of leadership knowledge and skills that when used effectively create the right environment whereby practice learning can flourish. Activities include being introduced to a scenario about setting up a community of practice, providing opportunities to reflect, plan and develop strategies to sustain clinical practice as an effective and key environment where student learning can take place. After reading this chapter you will be able to: • Identify the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) requirements for creating the right environment for practice learning and effective supervision and assessment • Understand the core concepts (five disciplines) of a learning organisation and how these can be used to sustain clinical practice as an effective and key environment where student learning takes place • Explore what is meant by leadership and how leadership skills can be applied to create opportunities for innovative practice learning and to promote the quality practice learning environment • Consider strategies that enable creative thinking around innovative student learning experiences, such as social prescribing and those that take place outside traditional healthcare organisations.
