Skills boost for nurses
Manama, July 11, 2007
Senior nurses from various specialisations at the BDF Hospital took part in a two-day workshop.
It was organised by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland - Medical University of Bahrain (RCSI-MUB) School of Nursing and Midwifery.
The workshop, held at the university, was on clinical teaching and supervision.
It was organised by nursing and midwifery director Batool Al Mohandis with department head Professor Seamus Cowman and BDF nursing representative Mona Al Shamlan.
Also present were RCSI-MUB Associate Professor Edgar G Anunciacion and nursing instructor Eman Al Tawash.
The workshop aimed to train nurses in clinical tutoring and improve the approach towards student nurses, while imparting clinical competence.
"We believe that experienced nurses should work alongside new nurses as they become more competent," said Cowman.
The agenda included discussions on myths and misconceptions surrounding clinical teaching, the concept of clinical teaching, roles and characteristics of an "Ideal" clinical tutor, guidelines for clinical organisation, clinical assessment, evaluation and environmental challenges that influence clinical teaching.
It is hoped the senior nurses who took part in the workshop will impart these training skills to students.
Participants suggested that clinical learning for the students should be improved.
The collaboration between the RCSI-MUB and teaching hospitals ensure the highest quality of education and instruction for students undertaking clinical training. TradeArabia News Service
