Log of Practice-Based Learning (90 hours).

You will need to complete a log of all practice-based learning which will clearly indicate the learning achieved in the 90 hours of supervised practice. In this log you record how you have demonstrated the required competencies for a prescriber. These activities are where the competencies contained in the RPS Competency Framework have been demonstrated. Students should directly and clearly evidence how they have demonstrated the competency and some uni’s require that you add a cross reference to each competency – not each activity (check with your uni). One activity may therefore have more than one reference attached to it. Some unis require that each activity must be witnessed by you or another as approved by you and initials placed by that activity.

Recorded hours in the practice log will include times when the student has observed, been taught or assessed. The log will require the type of session, the activity and patients, the conditions seen and assessed and the specific detail of how the competency has been demonstrated. It MUST NOT contain any patient identifiable information.
