We have an upcoming webinar on Thursday 22nd July at 2:00pm around supporting student placements within our care homes.
Dr Kathleen Duffy from NES will provide an overview of the current placement picture across all our care homes currently approved for students. She will highlight the benefits of supporting our future workforce and discuss the potential contribution care homes can make as practice learning environments (PLEs).
Due to the reconfiguration of all health and care services in wake of the pandemic, the demand for student placements is extremely high, not just for nursing students, therefore it is paramount that we utilise all potential care homes to support students by ensuring staff have the resources and information to be able to supervise and assess students through the new curriculums. One of the CHEF‘s will discuss their role in relation to this.
We also recognise that the last year had particular challenges which resulted in care homes having to safeguard residents against unnecessary footfall from external staff, this meant a significant decline within some student placement areas.
