The clinical workplace is ideal for learning how one integrates and applies knowledge, skills, and professionalism, in particular those learnt in a simulated setting. Ensuring patient safety and limited time for both teacher and learner, with competing demands of care, teaching, research, and administration are a challenge. The chapter will explore the learning cycle, from defining outcomes, to planning, learning, provision of assessment and feedback, and finally evaluation, which can provide a framework for both the teacher and the learner, to optimize learning in a busy, often chaotic environment. Flexibility and the ability to use a range of techniques to optimize learning are required by teachers. Understanding how the clinical experience in simulated settings and in the workplace complement each other is important for optimising learning.
