Affiliate programme improves staff skills and confidence

Written by Claire Bourne on . Posted in Glenside News

The Glenside therapy team has recently launched the Affiliate programme which aims to strengthen communication between ward staff and the therapy team and facilitate the provision of 24/7 rehabilitation for service users, as well as offering the opportunity for continuous training development for care staff.

The Affiliate programme is open to Rehabilitation Assistants who align themselves to a therapy discipline, including psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech & language therapy.

The Affiliate programme was also designed to allow ward care staff to get a more thorough understanding of a therapy discipline, equipping them with the skills and confidence to be able to effectively implement therapeutic care plans and support other team members to do the same.

Induction improves staff retention

Over the past year, Glenside has reviewed and developed the induction process which has led to a positive effect on staff retention and the number of people welcomed to the business.

The induction training has been developed so that each new employee benefits from a dedicated induction period. Clinical staff receive six full days of classroom based training before working on the wards/units. This includes all mandatory training such as moving and handling; health and safety and management of actual and potential aggression training (MAPA), as well as specialist training regarding various aspects of brain injury from our therapy team.
