Code: BH/21/0985 Adults CPD - Ethics, Values and Equalities in Mental Health

Register your interest in this 20 Credit, Masters Level 7, course by the 31st July 2021.  

The module offers an in-depth exploration of issues in relation to ethics, values and equalities in the field of mental health.  The overarching aim is to enable students to reflect critically upon the contested nature of mental health and the debates in relation to ethics and values that this engenders.  An exploration of service users’ experiences of stigma, discrimination and inequality will be central to the module, as well as a critical perspective on power.  Students will also examine the development of users and carers as consumers and researchers of mental health interventions, and what this means for social inclusion.

The module is the first module of the AMHP course but is also open to other students who may wish to study this aspect of mental health.  The focus of the module is on the ethical debates relating to mental disorder, including the use of compulsion in care and treatment.

Code: BH/21/1813 First Aid at Work 2 Day Recertification (very important: please see eligibility information within course details before requesting a place)

Who is this course for?

This 2 day recertification course is specifically for qualified First Aiders who hold a current First Aid at Work certificate nearing expiry and need to renew their qualification for a further 3 years. 

When attending a two day Re-Certification course, delegates must be aware that the syllabus is covered at a significantly faster pace, in the understanding that learners are familiar with the topics and have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course.

You can only attend this course if -

  • you are a council employee or work in Brighton and Hove City Schools and are required to be a lead First Aider at work
  • you have previously attended the 3 day First Aid at Work course and your current certificate is due to expire in the next 6 months
Please note: If your certificate has already expired you will need to attend the full 3 day First Aid at Work course.

The First Aid at Work is training is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid to people in a range of first aid situations.

The course is for those that will be acting as lead First Aiders in their workplace and will provide delegates with a recognised First Aid at Work qualification. Upon completion of the course, First Aiders will be able to take control and provide assistance in an emergency situation at their workplace. They will be able to respond to an accident or illness promptly, effectively and safely.

What does the training cover?
 
Topics covered include: resuscitation and CPR, dealing with wounds, bleeding, burns, scalds, heart conditions and minor injuries.

How are delegates assessed?

There are six practical assessments, observed by the trainer throughout the course and two theory assessment/multiple choice question papers. 

In addition, the trainer will carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.

To assess competence and gain certification, the delegate will need to demonstrate, without assistance from a third party, practical tasks such as CPR with the casualty on the floor to simulate a real-life situation.  If the delegate is unable to carry out this practical assessment, for example because they cannot kneel, then they will not pass the course and will not gain the qualification.  In exceptional circumstances, delegates who are unable to kneel, may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

Certification

On passing the recertification course, the delegate will be issued with a First Aid at Work certificate valid for a period of 3 years.


Re-Certification

Delegates willl need to retake the qualification before their certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending another two day First Aid at Work Re-Certification course.

If an employee’s certificate expires, they are no longer considered competent to act as a First Aider in the workplace. It is the responsibility of the delegate to ensure they book on to a Re-certifcation course before their certificate expires.

IMPORTANT - the first aid training programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are provided in the attached guidance document. Please ensure that this is read and understood before applying and attending this course. Delegates can also request a copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.

Please note: Whilst the course is delivered in a covid secure way, please consider with your manager whether it is essential for you to attend as the delegates will be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

Code: BH/21/1418 Managing and Learning from Medication Errors (Adult Social Care) (Zoom) (EVENT FULL)

This course is aimed at managers and seniors that look at the process by which medicines are managed.

If you’re trying to reduce medication errors stop right now, you’re thinking about this the wrong way around. You want to reduce the harm that medication errors (or more correctly medication incidents) cause, and the only way you’ll do this is by learning from these incidents. With success, you’ll see your reported incidents go up, giving you more opportunities to learn. But the harm they cause should go down.

This course will teach you how manage, report and learn from medication incidents. It will enable you to provide the correct response to Safeguarding Teams and Care Quality Commission (CQC). It will enable you to reduce the chance of harm from medication incidents occurring by learning from them.

We can study actual medicines incidents that have occurred in your organisation in the case studies (if you are able to send suitable examples to us prior to the course).

In addition to the handout, you will be sent an electronic copy of our medicines incident form and investigation protocols.
