MetadataShow full item record
Clinical education is considered a cornerstone of the healthcare professionals’ education including physiotherapists. Clinical education involves translation of theoretical knowledge into practical skills, facilitated by clinical educators whose roles vary from place to place. The clinical educators’ roles have a number of facilitators as well as barriers and these have been minimally evaluated globally and locally, including Uganda. Therefore, the aim of the study was to explore and describe the perception of the physiotherapists regarding their role as clinical educators and to identify the barriers to and facilitators for physiotherapy clinical education at the national and regional referral hospitals in Uganda.
