Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


The ability of healthcare students to accurately self-reflect is crucial to the attainment of clinical competency; however limited research has been conducted in the physiotherapy profession. This study sought to determine a) whether ratings of clinical performance on a nationally standardised tool differ between students and their clinical educators; and b) whether the magnitude of agreement differs between ratings of clinical performance measured at two different time-points during clinical placements.
