Updated May 14, 2018 12:02:22 A new qualification for healthcare workers is being rolled out to help them pass on a range of knowledge and skills to their carers.
A doctorate in health information systems will be available to anyone in the UK with a disability, and there will be a two-year qualification to help train them to work with the NHS.
The National Health Service (NHS) says it will also provide a certificate of completion for any nurse or midwife, or nurse practitioner who is qualified to work in NHS hospitals.
The move follows recent research suggesting that nurses and midwives with more than a third of a doctorate degree can outperform other healthcare workers, including teachers.
“The skills and knowledge of healthcare professionals have evolved, but there are also emerging challenges for healthcare providers in managing the complex systems that underpin healthcare and the workforce,” said Dr Karen Kelly, chief executive of the NHS Foundation Trust, the charity that runs the NHS’s training programme.
“We are now looking to train new nurses, midwives and doctors to meet the growing needs of healthcare providers across the country.”
Nurses, midwifes and doctors are currently the only providers with advanced training to work alongside the health service in the NHS, and this is a key step in ensuring that nurses, Midwives and Doctors can provide the highest quality care in a modern, sustainable and sustainable way.
“Healthcare workers will need to have completed a minimum of two years’ experience in a healthcare or healthcare information system, and a minimum number of hours of nursing or midwework experience.
They will also have to pass a test to qualify for the qualification, which will be held at the same time as their degree.
The certification will be valid for up to 10 years, but it will not be used to apply for jobs in the health services.
In a press release, the NHS said the certification would help healthcare workers meet the requirements of the National Health Insurance, which aims to cover those who need help with their daily lives.
It said: “Nurses and midwife are currently employed in a wide range of roles, and the NHS is looking to expand that workforce, and create more roles that provide better value for the NHS.”
The NHS said that its new certification would provide “a pathway to further professional qualifications in healthcare systems”.”
This new qualification will provide a pathway to the health and social care workforce and help improve outcomes for the people we serve,” said NHS England’s chief executive, Simon Stevens.””
It also recognises that healthcare workers with advanced degrees can improve patient outcomes and help deliver a range to the NHS and communities.”
“This new qualification will provide a pathway to the health and social care workforce and help improve outcomes for the people we serve,” said NHS England’s chief executive, Simon Stevens.
“This is good news for the health, safety and wellbeing of the public and the healthcare workforce.”NHS England said it planned to roll out the certification in the coming months.
NHS Wales has been working with the Department of Health to roll it out, and said the initiative was supported by its “carers and families” partners.
A spokesperson for the Department said: “This pilot is about helping people with mental health and disabilities learn about and be supported in their work.
It also gives them the confidence to get onto the next step in their career.”
“The Government is also working closely with healthcare professionals to ensure that everyone with a mental health or disability condition is able to access the skills and information they need to be a successful nurse, midwife or doctor.”
Healthcare professionals need to develop a robust knowledge of their patients and the health care system so they can provide quality care to patients.
