Practice Assessor Study Days for 2016.
Attendance at any event will be recorded and constitutes fulfilment of mandatory requirements. There are three types of update from Jan to December and mentors can attend any combination they require for their learning needs. You can attend AM, PM or the whole day.
The documentation updates and the sign off workshops are for nurses only and the theme days are inter- professional.
- The “Documentation Update”
This update is for nurses to update themselves on the nursing curriculum, Practice Assessment Tool and OPAL (Online Practice Assessment Learning).
The “Theme event ”
This inter professional event explores the theme of ‘Evidence Based Practice'
This will incorporate discussion around the nature of evidence based practice. It will aim to increase your awareness fo research, guidelines and policy and their relative value for professional practice. Furthermore development of your own knowledge and skills in using evidence based practice both as a practitioner and mentor will be explored.
- The “Sign Off workshop”
This workshop is primarily for those wishing to gain sign off mentor status and also understand the roles and responsibilities of the sign off mentor. This is achieved by having the opportunity to complete two of the three sign off events required by the Nursing Midwifery Council (2010) through simulation, (The third has to be completed in practice).
