Deprivation of Liberty Module Launched

Blue Stream Academy have launched a new Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) eLearning module.

Since the Supreme Court Judgement in the cases of P v Cheshire West and Chester Council and P & Q v Surrey County Council brought in a revised test that effectively lowered the threshold for deprivation of liberty in care, there has been a nine-fold rise in monthly referrals to councils.

Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards

The judgement extended key human rights safeguards to a broader group of vulnerable people meaning that many people in care homes, hospitals and supported living arrangements suddenly met the threshold to have their care arrangements assessed or reassessed to see if they were being deprived of their liberty and whether or not that was in their best interests.

The module includes information on what DoLS is, who the Safeguards apply to, responsibilities, the procedure for authorisation, the role of the IMCA and RPR. It gives a comprehensive overview for relevant members of staff and has a knowledge test of randomly selected questions for benchmarking competency.

Blue Stream Academy and Communities of Care

Admin No Comments

Blue Stream Academy are proud to be featured in the new three part series, ‘Communities of Care’ created by ITN Productions and NHS Alliance which looks at how the NHS is meeting the ongoing challenge of constricted budgets, increasing costs and strained resources within the healthcare industry.

Introduced by newsreader Natasha Kaplinksy, the programme was premiered at the NHS Alliance Conference hosted by ITN Productions in central London on 8th December 2015, in celebration of Dr Michael Dixon’s work as he steps down as chair after 18 years of dedicated service.

‘Communities of Care’ illustrates the effectiveness of Blue Stream Academy eLearning Suites in easing the administrative burden encountered by GP Practices, Dental Practices and Nursing/Care Homes.

The programme contains high profile interviews with the likes of Alistair Burt MP (Minister of State for Community and Social Care), Jeremy Hunt MP (Secretary of State for Health), Rick Stern (NHS Alliance incumbent Chief Executive), Dr Michael Dixon (NHS Alliance incumbent Chair) and looks at the efforts being taken to create a responsive/responsible system, explores the renewed focus on empowering individuals to manage their health within their communities and how that’s reflected across the country. Policies affecting primary care and initiatives to support the future of a proactive and preventative system are also examined.

Shelley McCart, Chief Executive Office of Blue Stream Academy said:

“Now more than ever it is vital that healthcare organisations are able to ensure that their staff are trained to a very high standard in order to offer the best possible patient experience. The Blue Stream Academy eLearning suites offer high quality training and management of training to GP Practices, Care Homes and Dental Practices at a fraction of the usual cost thus improving skills and bench marking competency whilst offering significant savings.”

Trevor Woolley Practice Manager at West Bridgford Medical Centre said:

“I have found Blue Stream training software very helpful. Apart from being CCG financed, it has standardised our staff training plans and the admin tools available to me are helpful. The courses themselves are intuitive and achieve the learning objectives. I am really pleased we have it available.”

Blue Stream Academy are pleased to announce that their much anticipated Care Certificate eLearning and Practical Assessment Suite is now live and available to use!

In addition to offering online training modules covering all knowledge outcomes of the Care Certificate Standards, this end to end solution also includes a system for recording all competence outcomes as well.

The Blue Stream Academy Care Certificate eLearning and Practical Assessment Suite has a Management Information System (MIS) which:

  • Records all eLearning training completed.
  • Records all evidence of assessed performance.

The suite is available nationally and can be used wherever there is an internet connection. No additional software is needed, it is compatible with all browsers and can be used on Android and Apple devices, including mobile phones.

The Blue Stream Academy Care Certificate eLearning and Practical Assessment Suite allows for transferring of records – should a trainee move jobs – and gives all employers a paperless option thus saving time and money. It also guards against loss of certificates or workbooks and ensures that the record is instantly accessible for inspection purposes.

Shelley McCart of Blue Stream Academy, said “As a result of feedback from many customers using our highly successful GP Practice, Dental Practice and Nursing/Care Homes eLearning suites, we have used our extensive experience of training and management of information needs to develop a complete solution that satisfies all of the requirements of the Care Certificate.”
