The Project’s Outputs
What we have developed:
Protocol for appraisal and audit of hospitals or clinics to receive trainees
The HEALINT Protocol contains criteria to ensure that when a student requires an international placement, the home organisation will be able to check and assure the quality of the placement offered by a host, despite differences in national regulations.
Protocol for training and support of auditors
The protocol safeguards the credibility of the audits undertaken, by ensuring the auditors are independent and meet rigorous requirements in interpreting what they see when making their review and by harmonising audit practice across countries.
Tools for Post-Evaluation of Placement-Quality
This output makes provision for the evaluation of the tool, identifying metrics which determine whether the conclusions drawn from the initial audit can be predictive of high quality placement learning environments.
Transferability Strategy (from the hEALINT Protocol to ISO IWA 35)
The Transferability Strategy targeted decision makers in Higher Education as a whole and globally, with the aim of facilitating their own introduction of similar schemes. BSI and ISO were key associate partners to achieve this.
