I have just developed a training package with the help of the e-learning co-ordinator, will be ready soon, this will give more time for the practical sessions.
The course is 30 minuets long and is interactive with a small quiz at the end. This will be a prerequisite prior to attending the Refresher training.
No but I think for the health and safety part and introduction to moving and handling e learning is the way to go.However staff have to have access to a computer preferably at work. At the moment carers in Rest Homes do not.
However there must always be some practical problem solving
Some of the AAMHP members have mentioned e learning. Try putting a question on their discussion forum
