Education audit has proved to be an effective way of reviewing current activities and learning opportunities available to health-care students during clinical placements. Despite the importance attributed to education audit in highlighting good practice, identifying where there is a need for change as well as providing information for future planning, there is no evidence in the literature to support its specific application to health-promotion learning opportunities. This paper describes a two-part study in which an education audit tool for use in evaluating health-promotion learning opportunities for students in clinical placements was successfully developed. This tool can be utilized by multiple stakeholders in a variety of clinical settings. Following a discussion of the background literature, the methodology (which involved the development of a series of dynamic relationships between researchers, commissioners and participants) is described. The aim of this article is to discuss the lessons learned from the process of developing the tool, including the problems that were encountered and how they were addressed. The authors conclude that their experiences in developing this tool can be usefully transferred to other educational and clinical settings.
