Training Interview

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Training assignment Overview of the organisation I'm looking at North Middlesex Hospital. The North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust operates a busy acute general hospital serving the communities of the London Boroughs of Enfield and Haringey, and surrounding areas. It is located in Edmonton, on the south side of the North Circular Road and on the Enfield/Haringey border. It serves a diverse and, in places, highly dependent population of approximately a quarter of a million people. Their nurses are categorised into different bands to know what skills and qualities each person has. They are quite a big organisation with a lot of staff. They have more than 500 staff working there. The interviewee has worked there for 6 years now as a nurse, and is in Band 6. She works in the operating theatres department, where they do all the major operations. The interviewee is a nurse and plays a major part in the operations. Identifying training needs Identifying training needs of an individual or a group of people is very important for an institution like North Middlesex Hospital. The nurses there, depending on the 'band' they are classified in are required to have specific skills in order to start work. ...read more.

It could also be that training in a specific area is required by an organisation for an individual to start work. Although there is induction training, other additional training, or past qualifications may be required. The interviewee said that the reason for her training was that she wanted to learn more about a specific procedure that was undergone at the hospital. 'To be more competent in a specialty in Orthopaedics trauma training.' Although this kind of training was not required to be undergone, she just wanted to do it, so that as a method of eliminating boredom in the work place. Boredom in the sense that she doesn't have to repeat the same job or procedure over and over again. Some of the benefits of undergoing this training for the employee includes: * To gain extra knowledge - Gaining extra knowledge in one or more areas will mean that employees can do more jobs, and get paid more. * Having more confidence in the job - This will mean that one is more able to do a job, and will do it wilth more efficiency. * Being able to provide better healthcare for patients * To be able to work confidently within the team. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Training was done at a university, so they had all equipment needed for training. * University lecture hall was used for theory teaching. * During the practical section of the training, they were all divided into groups, and that way, training is alot more efficient, and individuals have a chance to work in a team, which will also mean they will have been trained in team skill building as well as their original training. * Trainee is now able to work somewhere else with an agency that specialise in the 'orthopaedics' department. This is useful as there is the potential to earn more. Training was very successful as at the end of the course, the employee has learnt something new and gained something. Not only has the employee gained something valuable, but also the employer as they now have staff who are experienced in more areas. This is good for them as t would cost more to hire more staff than to train the ones they already have. At the end of the training, trainees were told to evaluate the training, how good it was... e.t.c Motivated Training has motivated trainee alot to do the orthopaedic surgery as she is now more confident in the skill she has acquired. Alternative - organised locally. Can't be as effective as off-the-job ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
