We have worked in partnership with several Universities to support the practice assessment of their students on their health programmes. Characteristically of our approach each practice assessment site has a different name. At Bournemouth University the site is called OPALBU; at Oxford Brookes University it is BePAD; at Surrey University it is the Surrey Practice Learning Platform and at Solent University it is SOLPAD.
Many of the sites support the practice assessment of multiple courses each of which has a different assessment methodology. At Bournemouth University student nurses, midwives, paramedics, advanced practitioners, operating department practitioners, physiotherapists and occupational therapists all use the same site.
