How do I report an incident while on placement?

An incident is something that results in (or potentially results in) harm to yourself or others. It can include physical injury or psychological damage. In the event of any incident occurring while you are on placement, you must not ignore it. You should:

  1. Seek medical attention where appropriate.
  2. Follow the health facility's incident response and reporting procedure.
  3. Contact your Facility Placement Supervisor, Placement Contact and / or Course Coordinator.
