Workplace Activities

Chronic Conditions of the Foot - CHCCCS032 PROVIDE BASIC FOOT CARE

The Benchmarque Group is required to gather evidence of a student’s ability to transfer skills and knowledge from the classroom environment to the workplace environment. We use workplace (or a workplace simulated environment) observation as evidence of this transfer.

Observation in the workplace

Students are required to provide a Third Party Report that has been signed off, in the primary healthcare setting, by a workplace colleague (observer). The requirement is that your observer is of equal qualification to you or above. Typically, this may be a medical practitioner or practice nurse that performs the identified tasks as part of their role.The observer’s role can also include, but not be limited to, mentoring the student to develop relevant workplace skills and knowledge, appropriate to the course contentWe recommend that the observer briefly reviews the course material for the individual they are observing prior to undertaking the workplace observation. If you believe that the student's knowledge, understanding and performance is inadequate in some of the areas covered in thisThird Party Report, we suggest that the student continues to practice, with mentorship, to help improve their performance to a satisfactory level.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)  

This Third Party Report may be used as evidence of the observers annual CPD activity.

Completing The Report

All information you submit will be treated confidentially and will only be shared with the student and Benchmarque Group.Should you have any questions or concerns with regard to completing this Third Party Report. Please contact Benchmarque Group on Ph: 1300 855 568.

Please note: a Benchmarque Group assessor may contact you should they require additional information to assist in making the assessment decision.

Third Party Report Assessment Conditions

Skills must have been demonstrated in the workplace or in a simulated environment that reflects workplace conditions. The student must follow established techniques, infection control guidelines and safety procedures for each of the following:

  • washing and drying of feet
  • nail filing
  • skin care
  • biological waste disposal

You must document the foot care you have performed according to your organisation's reporting guidelines and requirements. Be sure to document, refer and follow up on anything you believe requires attention.

After your observer has witnessed you perform Basic Foot Care on 2 x Clients, please have your observer sign the ‘Third Party Report’ form and return to accessIQ
