Published: 17/11/2021

Assessment of ACCS Learning Outcomes during ACCS placements

ACCS Entrustment Matrix

The ACCS Entrustment Matrix included below demonstrates the supervision/entrustment level for each learning outcome by the end of each ACCS placement.

Most of the ACCS LOs can be addressed during more than one of the ACCS placements, as illustrated in the entrustment matrix.  However, some ACCS LOs relate to specifically to one of the placements, such as Anaesthetics in the case of LO7.

The entrustment levels are designed to be achievable for each placement they relate to independently as shown in the matrix below.
