With more and more people wishing to remain at home and to have their care and support delivered in their own homes rather than within residential setting and the complexity of care needs within the community increasing, the role of healthcare support workers is rapidly changing and there is a shift to staff being trained in more clinical and specialist areas of care interventions. Our specialist and clinical theory courses are ideal for domiciliary and residential staff with responsibility for providing complex care and support packages or individual family members looking to gain a broader understanding for clinical interventions and the knowledge required to provide support to loved ones.
Osburn Academy are pleased to be able to offer theory training sessions relating to the care and support needs of individuals in relation to enteral feeding, tracheostomy care and oxygen therapy.
All of our clinical theory sessions are developed and written by a registered nurse and delivered by an experienced trainer, sessions are designed to provide learners with an in depth picture of each area, exploring and taking them through an understanding why interventions are needed, managing complications, provision of high quality care and support whilst providing the knowledge to begin putting theory into practice.
Each learner will receive a certificate of attendance for each session attended along with a reference and information booklet of the session to refer back to following their training.
It is however important to note that whilst Osburn Academy are able to provide theory and knowledge clinical sessions we are unable to provide practical competency assessments of learners and practice in the workplace, individual employers will be solely responsible for ensuring staff are able to carry out their role safely and to ensure competencies of staff when putting theory into practice.
