Title:
Emergency Department Competency-Based Train-the-Trainer Program
Abstract:
Emergency Department Competency-Based Train-the-Trainer Program
Conference Sponsor:Emergency Nurses Association
Conference Year:2002
Author:Matteo, Carmel, RN, BA
P.I. Institution Name:Cleveland Clinic Foundation
Contact Address:9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH, 44195, USA
Contact Telephone:(216) 445-6412
Clinical Topic: The need was identified that a more efficient method of testing unit-based competencies be established in order for staff to have more time and accessibility to competencies. The ED Management agreed to a "train-the-trainer" concept whereby staff was trained to become resource persons to check off unit-based competencies. Implementation: "Designated trainers" were chosen by the management team with input from the clinical instructor and clinical nurse specialist. Role qualifications included: registered nurses; respiratory therapists; and clinical technicians who demonstrated initiative, desire to teach and proficient skills. Designated trainers attended a 3-hour class on why we do competencies, what a competency is vs. a learning need, and how to test unit-based competencies. It was stressed the staff MUST demonstrate they can competently perform the skill independently. If they could not, they would be directed to the Clinical Instructor for training and retesting.
Outcomes: We have noted an increased compliance in completion of competencies. Completion in the year 2000, when the program began, was 90%. Competencies for the year 2001 were at 100% completion by the due date of May 31, 2001. Recommendations: This program allows for timely completion of unit-based competencies not only for the trainer but their coworkers. It provides incentive for nursing staff to be involved and committed to the department and allows staff to further their growth in educational activities. [Clinical Poster Presentation]
