This book examines workplace learning in healthcare settings. Growing and sustaining a healthcare workforce is an area of concern for all those working in the health and education systems. Consequently, understanding the workplace and the learning that takes place within it is fundamental to ongoing workforce strategy and planning. Through case study research this study examines systematically the experience of learners in healthcare settings over a two-year period while on a health studies programme. The findings suggest that the learning environment in these healthcare settings are unpredictable and the learning experience is open to a set of random interconnected variables. With these intrinsically linked variables a model of workplace learning has been proposed and provides a useful way of understanding the complexities that exist in the learning environment, how they interact and the impact they may have on workplace learning.
