Fitness to Practise Training

 

Taining to ensure senior managers, and staff, understand the fitness to practise procedures that relate to your professional area.

Risk Management Training

 

Our risk management training sessions help the registered healthcare professionals you employ understand the potential pitfalls of the fitness to practise process.  Our training helps you reduce the cost and disruption caused by fitness to practise investigations.

 

By improving your employees’ fitness to practise understanding, we help them identify regulatory risks, and successfully mitigate them.

By the end of the training, your staff will:

Understand their regulatory body’s approach to ensuring its registrants are fit to practise

Appreciate how conduct in their personal and professionals lives can impact their fitness to practise

Understand how to manage risks associated with being a registered healthcare professional

Understand the fitness to practise legal framework

Understand how dishonest behaviour and use of social media can impact their fitness to practise

Understand the “duty of candour” and what this means to them as healthcare providers

Fitness to Practise Committee Hearing Training

 

Typically, when you refer a concern to your regulatory body, a member or members of your organisation will be required to give evidence as a witness. This half-day course enables learners to understand what it is like to appear at one of these hearings as a witness.

By the end of the training, your staff will:

Understand the end-to-end fitness to practise process

Know how to work with your regulatory body’s caseworkers and associated disclosure requests

Have the ability to work collaboratively with third-party enforcement agencies

Understand examples of what behaviours should be referred to the regulatory body

Understand the concept of dishonesty (including the “Ghosh” test for dishonesty) and impairment by reason of ill-health

Understand the role of the witness.

Interim Meeting training

 

Some regulatory bodies are making more use of Interim Meetings; we can train facilitators and Case Managers in the skills needed to run these meetings effectively.

Well-developed facilitation skills are needed for the investigating case managers to get the most out of these less formal, but structured and managed meetings, and to encourage earlier sharing of information to improve the quality of information available to case examiners when making a decision at the end of an initial investigation.

 

By the end of the training, your case managers will:

Be able to explain the purpose, goal and structure of the Interim Meeting

Be able to manage expectations and prepare all attendees

Open the meeting, set the scene

Use active listening and summary skills to draw out and agree the facts

Apply non-blaming questioning skills to elicit the full story

Use neutral language to explain the facts and the evidence required from the Regulator’s perspective

Manage emotional outbursts

Close the session constructively
