"NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde"
NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Training Subgroup Meeting held on 23rd November 2006, at Dalian House Conference Room Present Evelyn Borland (chair) Jackie Britton Alastair Low Ann Dunbar Ann Gow Irene Proudfoot Roisin McAuley (notes) Apologies Heather Jarvie Gillian Halyburton Lynn Don Introduction/Welcomes: EB welcomes Irene Proudfoot Practice nurse from Crail Medical Practice to the group. Notes of last meeting: The note of the meeting held on 12th October had been circulated. AG raised a concern regarding the wording on page 2 and suggested it should be noted the concern of practice nurses regarding the training being offered – was around appropriateness/relevance – it was not that the staff were not motivated. . Also regarding Child Protection Training it was felt that this would only be done if there was a need for this outwith the training scheduled within the area. Proposed Remit: The revised paper was accepted. National Workforce Group: JB updated the group on the National Workforce Group, the main issues arising were: Practice Nurse Lead and Practice Manager Co-ordinator for Networking & Learning, both employed by NHS Education had joined the group. The main focus of the work being developed nationally appeared to be around the health behaviour change training. It was also noted that the national group for P2010/Keep Well was being used as a channel for communication on wider issues – eg audit of health improvement staff in CHCPs development needs. Communication is always welcomed. However it was agreed that the local group would wish the focus of the national group to be in supporting the Project. There was a discussion around HBS training provided by Health Scotland. JB indicated that herself and Gillian Hallyburton had met with Liz Cornwallis and that this had been very helpful. Presentation for Staff: JB referred to the draft presentation which she had developed and sought comment on this. The group agreed that this was helpful. There was discussion around some of the proposed ‘slides’ and it was agreed that the content would be selected dependant on the audience. It was agreed that t would be helpful to add something explaining why/how the target audience and practices had been selected. There was a discussion on how to cascade the presentation out into the system. It was suggested that there are managerial and clinical networks as well as the various committee meetings, staff bulletin and intranet were all good ways to get the information out. With regard to Practice staff JB indicated that she had offered to attend Practice meetings as appropriate. IP indicated that her own Practice were in the process of developing a patients’ newsletter and this would include communication on the Project. Action: JB Training support assessment / screening: AG feedback on behalf of the sub-group which had met to look at the CDSS screens –with a view to identifying training needs. The sub-group recommended that this issue be taken forward to the meeting with Practice Nurses scheduled for 28th November. There was discussion around the structure/content of that meeting. AG agreed to liaise with HJ and GH and provide feedback from the meeting to the training group as soon as possible. IP indicated that there were concerns in Practices around the IT systems – and the slowness of some of these. There were also concerns around the proposed tracking tool in some Practices. Action AG I.S.P: AL indicated that the Health Inequalities Trainer was in post and that Keep Well will be an area she will wish to engage with. It was noted that AL and AD would liase with the trainer on inequalities issues. Other Sources of training: JB referred to the discussions which she and AD had had with a representative from the Friends of CDM. JB indicated that as things had moved on she had requested that the proposal which was being developed be put on hold. JB and AD would review the needs. Action JB/AD Training Plan: AD tabled a paper mapping out proposals for training. She suggested that as much of the training could be sourced from internal resources the cost of providing this would be managed. EB enquired about the logistics of organising training. AD and others present indicated that there was no capacity to support this work from existing resources. JB indicated that she appreciated training being provided by others and that her expectation would be the organisation of such would be covered through the Project. AD enquired about the feedback forms being collated for the HBS training being offered by Liz Cornwallis. She indicated she would be keen to liaise with Liz around the recording and sharing of this information. JB & EB would take this forward. EB asked AD if she could draw up a timeline for training in the first three months of the project. JB suggested that perhaps NHS Education could provide/source some of the training desired. There was discussion around the desire from some Practices to have access to CBT training. AG indicated that there are supports available on-line. There was also discussion around communication and engagement and the training which could be available through the literacy health worker. AOCB: No further items were raised. Date of next meeting: The group will wait for feedback from the meeting on 28th before deciding the date of next meeting.
