Advising and supporting our clinical care colleagues involves developing training packages that suit different learning styles.
Not everyone can be in the same place at the same time to attend a seminar, for example.
That’s why we’ve devised an online suite of training materials for our Senior Care Leads under the direction of Nursing and Development Manager Leah Cooke.
The suite includes video tutorials on pressure skin and wound management along with competency assessments and quizzes. The whole package has a strong resident focus, including a video introduction from a resident, reiterating the message that personcentred care comes first at all times.
Leah said: “Doing more with our intranet resource means we can engage with groups of staff at their leisure. That’s very much the trend with training. We need to accommodate people’s diverse learning styles whether it’s for a knowledge refresher or a chance to develop new skills.”
