Angie's Story: Reflections on care home train the trainers programme

Watch the video


NHS Education for Scotland have been supported by the Scottish Government to develop and run an infection prevention and control trainer the trainer programme for staff working in care homes. 

The aim of the programme is to build local capacity to deliver infection prevention and control training and align with National Infection Prevention and Control Manual.  

The first ‘train the trainer’ course was held in March 2016 and the latest course was held October 2018, with another planned for February 2019. 

We now have over 125 staff working in care homes who have been trained to provide infection prevention and control education where care is delivered.  Angie attended the training programme in October 2017.

NES are delighted to be ableto share the stories of participants from our trainer programme. We were fortunate to have two previous attendees of the 2016 and 2017 training programme who delivered presentations to the trainer course held in October 2018 to share their experience and how they have implemented the training locally in practice.
