What is the APP instrument?
The APP is a 20-item instrument covering seven domains of practice (professional behaviour, communication, assessment, analysis and planning, intervention, evidence-based practice, and risk management). Performance indicators accompany each item to guide student learning and provide educators with with specific examples of behaviours that belong to each domain of practice. These are examples of expected student behaviour and are not a comprehensive list of all the behaviours you might observe.
