This year has been an exciting one for the health visiting workstream, as work has progressed despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are extremely pleased to announce that we have won the Gold award in the category of ‘Learning Technologies Team of the Year’, part of the 2021 Learning Technologies awards.
The workstream consists of senior representatives from each Health Board across Wales. They follow an evidence-based approach to create robust methods, tools and techniques that will be used to determine appropriate nurse staffing levels within mental health inpatient wards. The tools that are devised by the work stream will enable Health Boards and Trusts to calculate the right number and skill mix of nursing staff required to provide effective care for patients on mental health inpatient wards, as well as contributing overall to A Healthier Wales.
HEIW’s strategy sets out our organisation’s high-level aspirations and intentions to meet requirements, to call its staff, stakeholders, partners and suppliers to action, and to make positive changes now to achieve longer-term goals for Wales.
We are thrilled to be holding our next AHP Programme Webinar later this month. If you haven’t registered to join us yet then don’t worry you still can!
