The module has been created from a partnership between ONCORE and A1 Locums. A1 Locums recruit locum vets and nurses, as well as place permanent staff in the veterinary industry.
We identified that locums often feel rather ‘thrown in at the deep end’ when starting a placement, and that there was much we could do to better prepare you for work in an unfamiliar practice. This short course offers approximately 4 hours of CPD on this topic, on this easy-access self-directed course.
You will be taking a look at areas such as:
Choosing the right practice for you, by considering what fits with your current situation and skill set, and what practice environments may also provide you with further opportunities to develop your skills.
The essential items you will need in order to carry out a placement effectively
How to prepare the important information you need from the practice, and how to obtain it, by preparing a clear and simple ‘induction’ protocol
The financial considerations you will need to make with respect to locum work
Access to our flexible online learning environment for a two-month period
Informative narrated lecture/s that can be viewed at any time, and as many times as you like
Links to useful resources and tools
A ‘Locum Handbook’ which you will personalise to your own needs
Course duration: Course access is provided for two months
