Development of V-Care

The modules and the subjects within them have been chosen based on views of senior nurses within the Trust and across other Trusts in Greater Manchester; patient feedback data, Nursing Metrics Data and National policy and directives. Nurses working in non-ward areas may feel that some subjects within the modules are not relevant to their day to day practice and it may have been some time since they were involved with patients’ meals and nutrition for example.

However, the content and level of V-Care is designed to engender fundamental nursing knowledge and it is important we all keep up to date with these subjects.

Each module has an aim and learning outcomes with easy to use learning resources linked to the outcomes.  Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) have worked with the V-Care education team, e-Learning and library colleagues to ensure the learning resources are evidence-based and easy to use.
