Cutting-edge training has started for nursing faculty members and students of the Barbados Community College (BCC).
The college has collaborated with key local, regional and international partners to offer students and staff the BCC/University of Michigan Clinical Teaching Workshop and the BCC/National Training Institute/A1 Training Services Enhanced Skills in a Caring for the Older Adult Workshop.
The workshops were opened this morning at the Barbados Language Centre on the College’s Eyrie Campus.
BCC’s Strategic Project Director, Dr Andrea Brathwaite, said the two workshops being offered between June 5 and 9 have been organised to enhance the skills of the institution’s nursing faculty and to develop the contributions of the Nursing Auxiliary Programme graduates to benefit the country’s ageing population.
Co-Director, Clinical Learning Centre at the University of Michigan, Dr Deborah Lee said the activities have been carefully designed to promote collaboration, encourage critical thinking, and foster innovation.
“We will explore the latest evidence-based practices, learn from one another’s experiences, and enhance our teaching skills to create a lasting impact on the future of healthcare professionals. Together, we can impact our next generation of nurses, thus leading to better patient outcomes,” she said.
