This half-day course is intended to be an introduction or an update for staff working as Health Care Support Workers (HCSW's) in a care setting. It has been developed in response to reports which suggest that although HCSW's spend more time at the bedside than registered nurses, they receive significantly less training, education and supervision.
The study session will ensure that you have an understanding of the importance and implications of clinical observations, when they are abnormal and how to respond appropriately.
It will enhance the care you are able to deliver by ensuring your skills and knowledge is maintained, developed and up to date. You will receive a certificate of attendance from City, University of London.
Staff working as Health Care Support Workers (HCSW's).
Applicants must be proficient in spoken and written English.
There is no formal assessment for the delegates on this day but the day will be evaluated and your comments will be received with thanks.
