Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

The Best Possible Start (BPS) programme in NHS Lanarkshire is about giving the best possible care for pregnant women, families and children (0-8 years). National policy drivers define the necessary knowledge, skills and core competencies with the principles within the initiative ‘Getting it Right for Every Child’ (GIRFEC) providing the foundation for all practice.

The workforce need appropriate training to facilitate and prepare them to be highly skilled and well trained to effectively implement the BPS programme across Lanarkshire. This TNA was conducted with Public Health Nurses, Midwives and Neonatal Nurses to identify gaps in knowledge, skills and learning related to the GIRFEC competencies and multidisciplinary working.
