June 2008 sees the launch of Skills Suite for Care Knowledge Sets, by ThirdForce, one of the largest e-learning providers in the UK.
At a time when a quarter of NHS trusts are at risk of losing their licence to treat patients, due to failing hygiene tests, the launch of this training solution meets an urgent need for additional skills in this area.
Skills Suite for Care Knowledge Sets provides essential training to improve consistency of learning among care workers and healthcare professionals.
Employees in the care and health sectors can access clear and concise e-learning modules, addressing areas such as Infection Control, Dementia, Administration of Medicines and Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults.
Expert information can be accessed anytime, anywhere making it easier for employees that work varied shift patterns to complete the courses during quieter times of the day, and making training delivery for the employer more cost effective.
Guy Fletcher, Product Marketing Manager of ThirdForce said:
“With national reports stating that one in four NHS trusts is failing on superbug cleanliness targets, it has become apparent that today’s healthcare professionals require further training and resources.
We have developed a complete e-learning solution for the delivery of mandatory training and NVQs for the care sector.
It meets and exceeds the regulatory training requirements of the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) and is designed in line with standards laid down by Skills for Care.”
