Is there a difference between education and training?
educate verb 1 give intellectual, moral, and social instruction to. 2 give training in or information on a particular subject
train verb 1 teach (a person or animal) a particular skill or type of behaviour through regular practice and instruction. 2 be taught in such a way.

All NHS laboratories have to be CPA registered CPA covers the laboratory staff, but what about the ward staff?
NHS Litigation Authority Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts (CNST) All clinical negligence claims since 1995 Contributions depend on type of trust, specialities and number of WTEs Discount for levels of Risk Management Level 1: 10%, 2: 20%, 3: 30% (£3.8m)
CNST: Transfusion Standard 7 - Clinical Care There are appropriate systems in place for the request, safe storage, collection and administration of human blood and blood products Level 1 standard
CNST: Transfusion Guidance There is a widely disseminated Blood Transfusion Policy, which incorporates local protocols for the: Testing, request and collection of blood samples for pre-transfusion compatibility. Collection of blood or blood products and its delivery to the wards. Administration of blood and blood products including the prescription of blood and blood products.Contd
CNST: Transfusion Guidance There is a widely disseminated Blood Transfusion Policy, which incorporates local protocols for the: Care and monitoring of patients receiving transfusion. Process for reporting adverse events following transfusion. Guidelines, which define the responsibilities of each staff group.
CNST: Transfusion Guidance The policy is supported by an annual in-house training programme for all staff involved in the prescription, collection and administration of blood and blood products, including the Maternity Services where applicable. This will include both clinical and support staff, and should be incorporated into induction programmes for new staff and as part of the Trusts regular training and risk management programme updates for existing staff.
CNST: Transfusion Guidance Staff training records and competence should be maintained. There is a Hospital Transfusion Committee that oversees all aspects of transfusion. Autologous blood transfusions and the introduction of cell salvage should have been considered and, where appropriate, patients made aware of the options. The Trust participates in the annual SHOT Enquiry, and also includes near miss reporting. The Trust should consider the enquirys recommendations.
CNST: Transfusion Verification of Standard Copy of the Trust protocols for handling blood products, Hospital Transfusion Committee minutes and evidence of submission to SHOT. Training registers for relevant staff should be available at the assessment (including the Maternity Services, where provided).
Transfusion training in NHS hospitals (2004) n=106Induction Annual Update Doctors83%32% Nurses75%32% Phlebotomists75%43% Porters59%46% C Howell & M Murphy BBT2 Questionnaire
So whats the problem? Massif Mt Blanc
An approach to the problem Define the extent –Who are the people that need training? Porters / Nurses / Doctors / ODAs / phlebotomists –What training do they require? When? –How to deliver training? –How to keep documentation?
Transfusion Guidelines website Website contains links to many other sites providing education materials & specialist groups
What to teach? Importance of rules Local systems for patient and blood identification Collection and delivery of blood Transport of blood Documentation required (at relevant step) How to recognise, (treat), and report adverse events (or near misses)
Knowledge Information –Location of fridges, blood bank, wards –Blood groups and ABO compatibility –Your transfusion policy Can be tested in exam type questions written, spoken / paper or interactive IT
Skill Ability to perform task correctly –Positively identify patient –Checking procedures Need to teach in steps with person performing the actions Test by observing action No guarantee that correct skills are used in workplace – eg handwashing
Top-up training Changes to local systems Feedback on performance (incidents) Further transfusion training – consent issues, alternatives, new information eg infection risk / new testing Opportunity for testing of knowledge
Documentation Paper Electronic –Data entry –Swipe card –Readability? Getting the system right in the first place
Help!!! Local –Transfusion Team Cons / BMS / SPOT –Transfusion Committee members –Link Nurses –Risk Management –Personnel (Induction & SUET / A4C KSF ) –Clinical Governance Director (Dr & Trust Bd) –Medical Director –Finance – Management for new posts
