Abstract: Application of clinical staff development model (Teaching on the Run) to allied health and multi-professional audiences and to rural and remote settings Clinicians in a range of health professions are responsible for teaching and supervising students while they work in clinical settings. Teaching on the Run, a modular staff development programme, has successfully provided a sustainable platform for providing doctors with skills to teach and supervise students. Increasingly it is recognised health care should be delivered and therefore taught, in multidisciplinary groups. This Fellowship will be used to extend Teaching on the Run 1.To allied health areas (physiotherapy, occupational therapy); 2.To mixed allied health and medical audiences (medical, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy) 3.Using a self directed model with non-expert facilitators, to allow it to run in a sustainable way with remote and rural multi-professional audiences. This approach can be used to drive change as to how medical and allied health clinicians consider ways in which they may cooperatively provide clinical training, supervision and determine competence of their students.
