An online learning programme is set to be introduced at West Cumberland Hospital. Hospitals throughout North Cumbria (UK) will all benefit from the programme which has been developed by award winning cancer specialist Mark Irving. Courses on offer include: Venepuncture, Peripheral Intravenous Cannulation, and IV drug administration.
Director of Nursing for North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust Sandy Brown said: The trust is making significant investment in training and development by providing staff with additional, flexible learning opportunities. This will also benefit patients as skills develop.â€
Staff have been invited to log on and complete online courses. To date the site has 750 members in the north of the county and 22,000 members worldwide. The tool will be launched at West Cumberland Hospital on Friday.
