28/07/2020   Important News - Virtual Clinical Skills Workshops - Restart August 2020

We are pleased to announce the resumption of our successful Clinical Skills Training but rather than do this face to face we will deliver the workshop virtually. To allow these workshops to be fully funded an individual  must compete the 7 hours of learning in one month. In order to do this that learner must sign up to. 

  1. Attend one virtual workshop on the date advertised
  2. Then the learner must undertake at least two hours of self-learning. They will be required to submit evidence of this by the trainer before needing to attend a 2nd Virtual session later in the month
  3. This second Virtual workshop will be a Virtual Assessment Centre, where competence will be assessed, prior to completion of the course 

If they fail to attend to do the above then providers will be required to pay a surcharge of £75 Per person [This was in place prior to COVID]. The only other stipulation is any one individual can only attend one full day workshop per month, those are the rules. 

So here are the dates and topics we will be offering during August: 

6th Aug – Sepsis, NEWS & Vital Signs [Day one] [Start time to be confirmed]

11th Aug – Wound Care & Verification of Expected Death [Day one] [Start time to be confirmed]

19th Aug – Syringe Driver & COPD [Day one] [Start time to be confirmed]

 24th Aug – DAY 2 for all Assessments SEP

  • Sepsis, NEWS & Vital Signs 10-11am
  • Wound Care & VOED 1-2pm
  • Syringe Driver & COPD 2-3pm

To secure a place please can I ask you to fill in the booking form and ensure that all the required details have been completed as if they haven’t this will delay anyone being accepted on to the workshop add all the details required and send it back to either myself or Danielle Bradford
