The DEU is a model of clinical teaching and learning which expands upon the traditional concept of one-on-one preceptorship. It is a team preceptorship model that sees all staff within a clinical practice area (including MDT) offer support and learning opportunities to our undergraduate nursing students. Collaboration with our academic providers allows DEU areas to provide a more supportive clinical learning and teaching environment for students, encouraging incidental and intentional learning as well as peer teaching.
The following principles underpin the partnership between our Academic providers and a DEU practice area.
