This workshop will enable participants to discuss the use of the AMSAT tool, and share ways of implementing it in practice. Importantly, the AMSAT and associated behavioural cues are based on the minimum standards of practice. It is therefore timely to have critical conversations about setting standards and assisting learners to achieve higher than minimum standards. In particularly, we will share examples that can help supervisors and assessors elevate midwifery students to the highest levels of performance.
The development and validation of the revised AMSAT is an important step for the profession to assist consistency in student assessment, and benchmarking across the country to meet the requirements of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council and Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency requirements. Teaching effective use of the tool and assessment processes to enhance learning is an important step in achieving consistency, benchmarking capacity and high quality graduates.
