Users' experiences of viCPlace
viCPlace commenced development in 2011 and was first rolled out in 2012 to support the clinical placement planning process for nursing.
In November 2012, three time-limited viCPlace in Practice (VIP) groups (nursing, medicine and allied health) were convened to inform the ongoing development of viCPlace. The VIP groups comprised representatives of the Clinical Placement Networks (CPNs) from a range of sectors, clinical settings and practice areas. The groups provided specific advice to the department about the functionality and usability of viCPlace processes.
Based on the feedback provided by the VIP groups and existing viCPlace users (participants of the viCPlace pilot and clinical placement planning in 2012), further development is now underway. It is anticipated that a new release of viCPlace will be available to current users in June 2013.
Further rollout of viCPlace in 2013 will be prioritised to participants of the clinical placement planning process.
viCPlace was developed through CPNs, auspiced by the Victorian Clinical Training Council (VCTC) and funded by the Department of Health.
