Consolidation and Rehearsal of Essential Skills with Simulation (CARES)

Overview

CARES is a flexible programme that allows organisations to select the key skills that they are focusing on in line with their key performance indicators for patient (client) centred quality care.

The course provides a combination of theory and practice with participants the opportunity to participate in a simulation environment and reflect on their performance.

You can choose the skills or assessment your team needs and build your own tailor made training.

At the core of the CARES courses is an  A-E assessment.
