PRAC – 6665 Week 5: Midterm Clinical Evaluation

What do I have to do? When do I have to do it?
Review your Learning Resources. Days 1–7
Assignment 1: Clinical Hour and Patient Logs Record your clinical hours and patient encounters
in Meditrek by Day 7.
Assignment 2: Midterm Clinical Evaluation Your Preceptor will evaluate your clinical skills by Day 7.

All people—including clinicians and professionals—can have personal “blind spots” (i.e., individuals might not recognize an aspect of themselves that others see, positive or negative). That blind spot could relate to communication style, interpersonal skills, clinical skills, or discipline knowledge. Evaluative feedback is one way to see yourself from another perspective and uncover those blind spots. In this way, feedback from a trusted mentor such as your Preceptor can be enlightening.

This week, as you approach the halfway point of your practicum, your Preceptor will assess your clinical skills in a Midterm Evaluation.

Assignment 1: Clinical Hour and Patient Logs

Clinical Hour Log
For this course, all practicum activity hours are logged within the Meditrek system. Hours completed must be logged in Meditrek within 48 hours of completion in order to be counted.
You may only log hours with Preceptors that are approved in Meditrek. Students with catalog years before Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 576 hours of supervised clinical experience (144 hours in each practicum course). Students with catalog years beginning Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 640 hours of supervised clinical experience (160 hours in each practicum course).

Each log entry must be linked with an individual practicum Learning Objective or a graduate Program Objective. You should track your hours in Meditrek as they are completed.

Your clinical hour log must include the following:

Clinical Faculty
Total Time (for the day)
Notes/Comments (including the objective to which the log entry is aligned)

Patient Log

Throughout this course, you will also keep a log of patient encounters using Meditrek. You must record at least 80 encounters with patients by the end of this practicum (40 children/adolescents and 40 adult/older adult).

The patient log must include the following:

Clinical Faculty
Patient Number
Client Information
Visit Information
Practice Management
Treatment Plan and Notes: You must include a brief summary/synopsis of the patient visit. This does not need to be a SOAP note, however the note needs to be sufficient to remember your patient encounter.

By Day 7 of Week 5

Record your clinical hours and patient encounters in Meditrek.

Now that you have been working at your practicum site for more than a month, it is time to test your skills. Your Preceptor will now assess your clinical skills in a midterm clinical evaluation. In preparation for your evaluation, you may wish to review your PMHNP Clinical Skills List document, as well as revisit the goals and objectives you established in Weeks 1 and 2.

To Prepare

Check with your Preceptor to verify that they have received Meditrek credentials.

Following your midterm evaluation, your Clinical Faculty and Preceptor will meet privately to discuss your results and feedback. Once you receive your feedback, compare your Preceptor’s evaluation with your self-evaluation to better understand your clinical performance.

By Day 7 of Week 5

Your evaluation should be completed by your Preceptor.
