Professional Update Workshops

Continuing Professional Development (workshop)

Half day

Overview

These workshops are aimed at established practitioners - update your knowledge in Cervical Screening, Immunisation and Vaccination and Non-medical Prescribing. Our informative and interactive study days will incorporate any recent changes and highlight their impact in practice.

Cervical Screening Update

Cancer of the cervix is a potentially preventable disease and early detection and treatment may reduce the need for invasive surgery. With increased knowledge, skills and understanding of cervical diseases, you will be able to contribute to the overall success of the screening programme by undertaking effective cervical screening, enabling rapid referral and treatment.

Indicative content:
  • new developments in practice
  • HPV Triage - NHSCSP guidelines
  • laboratory cyto-screening
  • colposcopy referral.

Immunisation and Vaccination Update

This workshop provides an overview of the aims of immunisation, maintenance of the cold chain, types of vaccines, promoting uptake, new developments, consent/legal issues and anaphylaxis management.

You will be emailed a pre-course booklet with links to relevant information, in accordance with the Health Protection Agency recommendations.

Indicative content:

Non-medical Prescribing Updates (V300)

If you're an established practitioner, these workshops will keep you up-to-date as an effective, independent and supplementary prescriber. These informative and interactive study days will incorporate any recent legislative changes and their impact in practice.

Each session will include a professional update, a hands-on workshop to increase confidence in consultation and prescribing skills, plus plenty of opportunities to engage in discussions and ask questions.

You will need to bring your Formulary with you, as all of these workshops will involve some group work and prescribing scenarios.

The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.

We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.

We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
