In 2017, the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research implemented a project to develop curriculum guidelines for all health and social care programmes. The modified RAND/UCLA appropriateness method used by the group developing guidelines for programmes in prosthetics and orthotics is described. The method resulted in 126 learning outcomes that were condensed into 48, encompassed within eight competency areas. This number is greater than the number of learning outcomes found in most existing syllabi but comparable to those found in similar work carried out internationally. The article suggests that the RAND/UCLA appropriateness method is a suitable method to deploy in the development of curriculum guidelines.
