How will the COVID19 pandemic impact on the Primary Care Nurse Training programme and Practice nursing in general?
The COVID19 pandemic will undoubtedly have a huge long-term impact on the healthcare needs of the population, particularly around areas such as Long Term Conditions management, vaccinations/ immunisations and Mental Health. The legacy of the pandemic will undoubtedly also impact on the way that care is delivered in General Practice.
The Nurse Educator team at the Training Hub will ensure that not only will the programme meet any social distancing regulations in place at the time, but also that it will contain content which is relevant to current (& predicted future) working practices in Primary Care.
We anticipate that training will be delivered mainly through face-to-face sessions, but with virtual sessions wherever required by government regulations.
