The outgoing training coordinator has added.;
I feel that this will be an interesting and potentially very exciting post for someone with some experience of the struggles and importance of Medical Device training. At NBT, we have a well-established Clinical Equipment Training Policy and training scheme with one other experienced part-time trainer in addition to the co-ordinator. Over two decades we have developed an active network of cascade trainers among Nursing & Midwifery staff (with support also from among Allied Health Professionals and Theatre Practitioners). It has recently been clarified that the Clinical Equipment Training service which falls under ‘Clinical Equipment Services’ should definitely continue to fall within the expertise of this Equipment Management department. Correct use of our Equipment Library has been confidently incorporated into a Medical Device Awareness course and several technicians are furthering their knowledge about the current training on the equipment they maintain with a view to greater involvement. We have always liaised closely with Learning & Development who organise a slot for us at Trust Induction and have invited us to participate in exploring the capabilities of the upgrade to the ‘Managed Learning System’ that we already use for records. The Policy and scheme need to be developed post-COVID and in a context where more online resources are expected. All the materials we shared hard-copy for years are being pulled onto an Intranet site. We are exploring how much of the theory behind the practical use of equipment can be usefully conveyed via e-learning and how we can back up the work of the workplace-based trainers by such resources.
