07/05/2020   Two new e-learning courses available for free

In an effort to support residential care and dual registered homes and their staff during this extremely trying time for the care sector, LinCA Workforce Development has commissioned two further eLearning programmes:

Verification of Expected Death: The course aims to provide the essential knowledge required for verifying an expected death. Using a simulated practical experience in a controlled environment, attendees will develop the skills needed to verify a deceased person, as well as how to spot the signs of a suspicious death.

Every care home has been allocated four free licences. If you have more members of your workforce who need to undertake this training, you can ask individuals to share and undertake the training as a small group, but make sure you track who has done the training and update individual training records.

Wound Care: This course has been specially developed for all staff working within the health and social care sector. It covers wound care and the procedures required to minimise the risk of infection. The course is designed to support the management of simple wound dressing and assist in the assessment process to support the local district nursing team.

Every care home has been allocated five free licences. If you have more members of your workforce who need to undertake this training, you can ask individuals to share and undertake the training as a small group, but please track who has completed the training and update individual training records.

Both programmes are now live and open for you and your staff to access via the Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adult Board [LSAB] website: https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/safeguarding/lsab
