Practice learning topics

Welcome to the Practice learning topics (PLT) area of the PBPL site. PLT is a collation of the work produced by a variety of PBPL investigations and projects and other useful resources from the Faculty of Health and Social Care. If you're a course team member, tutor or staff tutor you'll find resources relevant to your work. The resources include original articles, checklists and workshop activities arranged around five topics detailed below. Each topic includes a main page with links to the resources, a quick access index, a longer reflective piece and a visual map of the topic.
