News and Updates

  1. 'CHEWS'
    In June 2013, train2care launched its' accredited CHEWS (Care Homes Early Warning Signs) course in Ireland, being duly accredited by An Bord Altranais (the Irish Nursing Board), having been re-accredited in June 2015, (for a further period of 2 years), it continues to receive wide acclaim and a very enthusiastic response indeed.

    June 2014: CHEWS Course receives RCN Accreditation with 8 CPD 'Participatory Learning' Hours

    August 2015: CHEWS reaccredited by RCN again with 8 CPD 'Participatory Learning' Hours. Currently extended until 16 September 2016.

October 2016: CHEWS reaccredited by the RCN.

October 2017: CHEWS accreditation has beeen extended by the RCN until November 17, 2017 whilst our application for re-accrediation is being processed.

CHEWS: 'The In-house Option' - this is proving very popular for our clients and thus we have been limited in the number of 'open' (public) courses we have been able to run. However, we do hope to run one or two in both the UK and Ireland towards the end of this year 2017 and certainly more at the beginning of 2018.

The CHEWS course links in with and supports the NHS's current 'Out of Hospital' strategy.

  1. CHEWS 4 HCAs
    The demands on nurses are ever increasing, thus we developed our CHEWS course to answer such demands within the residential care sector: alongside them and an integral part of the Care Team are the suppport workers - healthcare assistants HCAs. They to are as dedicated and in order that they may aslo shoulder more of the care responsibility, obviously clearly within their scope of practice, we are working, together with healthcare professionals, several NHS CCGs and two Residential Care Organisations, on designing and developing a course for HCAs; for as they possibly have more day to day contact with residents, they may be the 'eyes and ears' and note signs of deterioration earlier, thus the CHEWS 4 HCAs is designed to equip them with the very skills to make their role more effective in spotting signs of deterioration and alerting other members of the care team that much faster.

Initial results are very encouraging indeed, with all HCAs showing the same enthusiasm as the nurses do for our "brilliant" CHEWS course.
