Practical Skills Training

Bookable practical skills sessions on various equipment and procedures in the Emergency Department are available to all ED staff to attend every Wednesday, 9am-5pm.

These sessions are being introduced in order to ensure staff are confident in their abilities on the shop floor with various equipment and to refresh skills should they wish to.

The sessions will require advance viewing of a short video on the theme of the session; direct learning with the equipment and trainer; and then an assessment with a debrief on correct equipment use.

Month-long themes are provided in order to make the sessions more open and accessible to all. You can either book in to secure a time slot or just drop in on the day and we will attempt to provide you some training.

Each session is approx. 20 minutes long starting on the hour and every half past the hour. We can usually accomodate up to 5 people per time slot depending on the equipment involved in the training.
