Healthcare assistants are also known as nursing assistants, auxiliary nurses or support workers. They work under the direction of qualified professionals and work closely with patients. They need mandatory training to ensure they carry up-to-date knowledge and skills in providing care, comfort and safety to patients in hospitals or other medical settings.
Through mandatory training, the following qualities will be developed:
Healthcare assistants (HCAs) and assistant practitioners (APs) are a vital part of the nursing team. Mandatory training, which is essential for the safe and efficient delivery of services, will support assistant nurses when working in all sorts of settings, including hospitals, doctors' surgeries and the community.
Mandatory training supports healthcare assistants in making sure that they are delivering safe, efficient and person-centred services. In general practice, healthcare assistants are commonly trained to undertake specific clinical procedures, such as blood pressure and new patient checks, health promotion, urinalysis, weight and height recording, ordering supplies, equipment sterilisation, and phlebotomy.
Mandatory training for healthcare assistants also promotes the following skills:
Mandatory training courses for healthcare assistants may include the following:
The most common mandatory training subjects that might apply to healthcare assistants include:
Yes, mandatory training is vital as it enables healthcare assistants to meet organisational obligations and to achieve the standards set by regulatory authorities. Both statutory and mandatory training equips healthcare assistants and healthcare workers with the essential knowledge and skills to work safely and effectively.
Statutory training for healthcare assistants refers to the training that the law requires or where a legislative body has instructed an organisation to provide such training based on specific legislation. Examples of such legislation include the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
Statutory training intends to keep healthcare assistants up-to-date with the latest legislation, regulations, guidance and best practice recommendations. Statutory training also ensures that healthcare assistants have the skills and knowledge to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for themselves, their colleagues and patients/service users.
Healthcare assistants who are required to participate in a training program, such as mandatory training for work, must get paid for that time. Hence, if the employer requires all new healthcare assistants to attend orientation training, or their current healthcare assistants to attend infection prevention and control training, that time must be paid.
