1. ‘Clinical education’ is an umbrella term used to encompass the terminology of health professions education that occurs in the clinical or practice setting. For example, in some therapy professions, it is more usually known as ‘practice education’; in nursing it can be termed ‘practice-based education’. But it generally refers to any education that occurs in the real-world setting of that discipline.

Clinical Education Research (ClinEdR), therefore, describes research that contributes to the health needs of society by enhancing the education, training and development of health and social care practitioners and the structures and contexts in which they work and learn.
