Introduction

This unit is designed for those who are employed in the health services, perhaps as a paramedic or as operating theatre staff. If you are a student, you will have a tutor to help you, and perhaps a work-based mentor supplied by the employer – normally the NHS. The aim is to use the workplace as a teaching arena that helps provide relevance and meaning to the activities you undertake, and it is especially designed to be relevant to students' current or future employment in health areas.
