Teaching Resource Title: Educators and students prefer traditional clinical education to peer-assisted learning model, despite similar student performance outcomes: a randomised trial

Brief description:

Investigation of an increased student to supervisor ratio placement which also explores clinical education outcomes. The study indicated that the increased student to supervisor ratio decreased reliance on clinical educator due to peer mentoring and was thus less burdensome for the supervisor/clinical educator. However satisfaction for the clinical educator/supervisor was less due to potentially reliance on traditional forms of clinical education. The study indicated that more flexible peer assisted learning strategies may need to be implemented to increase user satisfaction.
