Good scientific and clinical practice

Most of this T level topic on Good scientific and clinical practice focuses on procedures for working in these environments, such as standard operating procedures, and these could be linked with experiences on the student's placement to reinforce ideas and gain exemplars for future teaching. There are very few teaching resources available on this topic, but numerous examples that could be used from the school or college lab technicians on how they clean, maintain and calibrate equipment and also opportunities  to bring in work related examples to lessons, for example looking at the standard operating procedures for a local NHS trust.     

Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly. Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment.
