    Abstract

    This article explores the issues around approaches to developing clinical skills. While many healthcare institutions provide formal clinical skills training, it is difficult to determine whether it is training or the clinical environment that informs practice. Formal clinical skills training limits learning only to when the resource is available, rather than when an authentic learning experience presents in the clinical area. Learning needs to be grounded in experience and exposure, and encourage incremental development. Education needs to encourage questions and analysis of performance.
