Clinical incidents involving students on placement: an analysis of incident reports to identify potential risk factors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Students are sometimes involved in incidents during clinical training. To the authors knowledge, no quantitative studies of incidents specifically involving physiotherapy students on clinical placement are available in the literature. A retrospective audit (2008 to 2011) of incident reports involving physiotherapy students was conducted to identify the nature and features of incidents. The study aimed to determine if injuries to a student or patient were more or less likely when the supervisor was in close proximity, and whether students with lower academic performance in their preclinical semester were more likely to be involved in an incident.
