User guides and useful information
Your Practice Assessor is able to view any evidence within your MYEPAD via this link. They will also be able to sign off your Assessment of Proficiencies, Professional Values, complete your interviews etc.
Pebble Pocket is available for smart devices, that has forms you can use to record evidence such as a shift or record of working with others, collect patient/service user/carer feedback when you do not have access to your MYEPAD. These forms are verifiable by the practitioner you are working with and when sent via wifi, go straight to your MYEPAD asset store ready to be linked to the relevant rosette.
Remember your Practice Assessor can only view items within your MYEPAD, not your asset store, so anything completed within a MYEPAD tab and saved will be visible to your Practice Assessor. However any evidence you have collected outside of the MYEPAD such as, weekly time sheets, evidence from Practice Supervisors or other healthcare professional who do not have access to your MYEPAD so you have completed one of the downloadable word documents, or other evidence such as reflections, work undertaken in class etc will need to be added to your MYEPAD asset store and then linked to relevant rosettes within your MYEPAD to enable the Practice Assessor to view them.
You may store your academic work and evidence via your university OneDrive rather than the university M drive. This is how you link this storage area to your MYEPAD so you can link evidence to the relevant rosettes.
How to record your worked hours weekly sheet and any absences. Each weekly sheet adds up your hours for the week. The first section of the video is how you fill these forms in as a student and the last section from slide 13) is how your Practice Assessor verifies each shift and the weekly total of worked hours.
You are not allowed to claim break time so these need to be removed from your total hours. The normal shift patterns are
Short shift – Early or Late – in 8 hours on shift, with 30 min break so 7 hours and 30 mins claimed
Long shift – either a day or night shift – 12 hours and 30 mins on shift, with 1 hour break, so 11 hours and 30 mins claimed.
Please note that 11 hours and 30 mins in the maximum number of hours you can claim for a shift, this is because of the number of hours you need to have off between the end of one shift and the beginning of another.
These tabs need to be completed on the first day of your placement. The Orientation tab needs to be completed for each area you visit during the placement block. Additional orientation forms can be downloaded using the downloadable forms below and then need to be uploaded and attached to the relevant rosette.
This video shows you how to complete the initial interview from a student, Practice Supervisor and Practice Assessor perspective.
