Wiltshire Public Health is offering Basic Sample Taker (smear) Training to Nurses looking to qualify in liquid based cytology. Wiltshire Council Public Health provides Sample Taker training and Updates for GP’s and Nurses working in Wiltshire, Bath and Swindon General Practice. This two day course is run by experienced nurses in accordance with NHSCSP publication 23.
Basic cytology training is organised in three parts:
Day one which is a theoretical day, followed by a period of in-house supervision. Once your in-house supervisor is satisfied with your performance you will continue to take samples in practice to ensure you can provide an audit of 20 samples by day two.
Day two is a practical teaching day with presentations from clinical leads. Training should be completed within a 6 month period. You will receive an in-house assessment which ideally should take place as near to Day two completion as possible. You will be allocated an external assessor.
Basic Cytology Training covers liquid based cytology, sample taking technique, anatomy & physiology of the pelvic organs, menstrual cycle, menopause, HPV, call recall, practical sessions, screening policy, direct referrals, sexual health, laboratory and colposcopy procedures.
