Both students had limited experience with the roles of other health professionals.  Asked about the process of 'disengagement' with clients that you have worked with over a longer period.

As the results illustrate, most students were either exemplary or satisfactory in their behaviour. Students who were rated "improvement desired" were provided with feedback regarding comportment during the spring placements.  Clinicians were also encouraged to be completely honest during the fall evaluations to ensure that students who were previously evaluated as "improvement desired" had indeed improved.
