Validate your Care (V-Care)
Validate your Care (V-Care), aims to provide an evidence-based one stop user friendly on-line learning portal to support busy nurses to assess, develop and assure themselves of their knowledge across core areas of fundamental care. It also provides the Trust with an opportunity to assure the public and other stakeholders that its nursing workforce is up-to-date, and practising caring and compassionate evidence based care.
V-Care will be accessible at any time on any device, in or out of the trust, facilitating a flexible approach to learning and development. The programme is designed to engender the “6-Cs” and the Trust values, avoid duplication of effort with requirements of some mandatory training and to support nurses to prepare for the professional re-validation requirements from the NMC.
V-Care has to be completed in the 1st year every three years.
Completion of the programme will take between 2-10 hours, but will vary between individuals depending on their learning style and existing knowledge of the subjects.
The programme is structured into 3 modules:
- Recognition and Management of the Deteriorating Adult
- Care of Older People in Health care settings
- Evidence Based Acute Medical and Surgical Nursing Care
