In-house Training Courses for Healthcare Assistants

Monday, 22 April, 2013

In early 2012 Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (LTHTr) implemented a project to improve the interface between student nurses and healthcare assistants (HCAs).The Clinical Education Team at the trust developed two new courses for HCAs working at Bands 2 and 3 to enhance their knowledge and skills base, and Practice Education Facilitators (PEFs) attend each course for an hour to outline what student nurses are required to learn as part of their pre-registration nursing programme. They also go through documentation and how HCAs and student nurses can support each other on placement.
