Quality Management of the Learning Practice Learning Environment (QMPLE)

Quality Management of the Practice Learning Environment (QMPLE) is an online database that has been developed by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) in partnership with colleagues from both practice and universities.  It manages information relating to the quality of the practice learning experience through student feedback, educational audits, Quality Standards for Practice Learning audits (QSPL) and Practice Assessor data. 

Team Leads and staff who are granted access, use QMPLE to provide information on their clinical area for pending students. Anyone who should have access, please contact your local Practice Education Facilitator or Care Home Education Facilitator (PEF or CHEF). 

The Knowledge Network

The Knowledge Network is the national knowledge management platform delivered by the NHS NES Knowledge Services Group. It provides knowledge support for health and social care where they can search NHS Scotland’s national collection of electronic resources (e-journals, articles and e-books) along with all the local NHS Scotland library collections (primarily print books). 

The Nursing and Midwifery Council Code

The Nursing and Midwifery Council Code The Code presents the professional standards that nurses and midwives must uphold in order to be registered to practise in the UK. 

It is structured around four themes: 

  • prioritise people,  
  • practise effectively, 
  • preserve safety and  
  • promote professionalism and trust. 
The Nursing and Midwifery Recovery Standards

The Nursing and Midwifery Recovery Standards  were created in response to the ongoing Covid-19 situation in order to support students, approved education institutions (AEIs) and their practice partners. The key principle is that normal education should continue where possible and where it is not possible AEIs have the option to apply these standards to their programmes.
