The workshops welcome General Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Nursing Associates, Trainee Nursing Associates, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Student Nurses, Student Nurse Paramedics, Physician Associates… anyone with a clinical role within Primary Care that is already trained in the topics above.

New to practice and want to have some hands-on experience with a mannequin to gain skills and confidence or if you are an experienced practitioner and want to refresh your skills then this is the workshop for you!

We have equipment available in the workshops to enable you to practice your skills and get hands-on experience with the support of a friendly clinical educator plus a practical handbook to guide you through.

  • Please note that these workshops are not a formal training session and the purpose is to support delegates in building on knowledge and skills already learnt from previous formal training.

Delegates must join the session from the start time and leave once they feel they have gained enough from the workshop: there is no requirement to stay for the full 3 hours. In addition, delegates may attend to access one of the pieces of equipment or all of them! This is a great opportunity to get hands-on and have a play with the mannequins to help improve your practice!
