Here at Blue Stream Academy, we realise the challenges you are presented with regarding care workers time, training and compliance. We have been working hard with care home managers to produce a tailor made online solution for care and nursing service managers and their staff.
We have developed a suite of interactive training modules which are easy to use, inline with CQC outcomes and have full CPD accreditation. Blue Stream Academy Ltd. are the supplier of choice and have been awarded a contract for all GP services in your area.
With this in mind, Health Education England (HEE), in conjunction with Cornwall, Devon and Somerset Community Education Provider Networks (CEPN), are implementing a CLiP (Collaborative Learning in Practice) project:
Nursing homes and nursing beds in residential homes are closing in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset due to the inability to recruit qualified nurses to these settings. The lack of qualified nurses also means mentors are not available to support learners. CLiP will aim to alleviate this by introducing a model of education to potentially change the scenario.
Typically, on any particular shift, one coach will be responsible for a group of patients, the care of whom is primarily delivered by the learners. Multiple learners will experience complex care needs in the community supported by an expert clinician. Again this fits with the newly proposed Standards of Proficiency for Registered Nurses (NMC, 2017).
The result will be an excellent placement experience and the Nursing Home setting will be marketed as a valued place of employment. In addition the model can be replicated across other STP footprints. This 12 month project will result in the presentation of recommended practice to achieve implementation of a process that will ensure enhanced access to placement learning in Primary and Community Care Settings.
As part of this, Blue Stream Academy has offered care services in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset the chance to access their mandatory training system for free for a whole year. Your staff will have access to modules such as Safeguarding, GDPR and Principles of Health and Safety (please see here for a full list).
If you would like to take up this offer then please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com or call Adele, our Nursing and Care Home Suite Manager on 01773 822549.
