This quick talk will focus on how the presenter developed and implemented a workplace learning based assessment item focusing on evidence-based practice. This was after review and reflection of existing practices, and seeing a need to engage students during their placements. In this assessment, students need to apply the evidence-based practice process to a client or client group that they are working with during their placement.

This assessment includes five parts that students submit via the journal tool on their interact site over the duration of their placement. As part of the development of this assessment item, input and feedback was obtained from the occupational therapy team, as well as a learning resource officer and educational designer. This assessment item has been implemented in session two, and will require ongoing review and development.
