How to demonstrate evidence

Senior Lecturer Simonne Weeks looks at how to inspire trainees to create innovative and original evidence for the IBMS portfolio.

Simonne Weeks, a Senior Lecturer for Biomedical Scientist Placements at the University of Brighton, works with trainees to help them make sense of the codes of conduct that are outlined by the HCPC and IBMS.

She has found that some trainees find it particularly difficult to demonstrate knowledge and competency for Module 1 (Personal Responsibility and Development) of the IBMS portfolio (see box) and this year she offered a group exercise that could generate innovative and original pieces of evidence, as well as valuable group discussions that can be used and adapted by other training officers. Trainees were asked to do the following:

1. As a small group exercise, make notes on your reading of the HCPC Standards of conduct, performance and ethics and the IBMS Code of conduct and the Good professional practice in biomedical science guide and create an infographic that highlights three to five essential codes of conduct for a trainee biomedical scientist.

2. Present your infographic and reflect on how you can develop and demonstrate professional attributes, such as being adaptable, flexible and effective in managing this self-directed learning while working.

Here Simonne’s trainees Sofia Babiker, Christina Demetriou and Kirian Johnson offer insight on how the task helped them make sense of the codes of conduct.
