Knowledge, skills and career development is vital to the success of organizations. Training is one of the principal methods of maintaining and improving employee skills. Unlike well-trained staff, untrained or poorly trained employees can prove expensive. Training affects employee retention and is a valuable commodity that, if viewed as an investment rather than as an expense, can produce high returns. 

Just Talent provides a variety of training solutions for both individuals and corporate clients.

  • Who should attend this course?
    This course is designed for medical professionals, such as doctors, surgery team, nurses and anyone that is coming into contact with children while hospitalized.

    What is the expected learning outcome?
    This one-day course is unique, innovative and the first of its kind. The course introduces management strategies that allow practitioners to reduce anxiety in children and achieve a positive outcome and experience for the child affected.

    Up to 80 percent of children admitted to hospital with chronic illness experience anxiety from hospitalization alone. Between 50 and 75 percent of children having surgery experience anxiety in the anesthetic room. Such anxieties stay with the children through their lives and have an impact on the healing process.

     The number of children influenced is so high that the only solution is for every practitioner involved in the care of children in hospital to have a core competency in anxiety management.  Every member of staff would be trained to identify, manage and potentially prevent anxiety in children under their care. Every member of staff that a child comes into contact with from the moment they step through the hospital doors would be able to substantially reduce the morbidity experienced by that child. The skills and management strategies gained from the course, complement and enhance the skills the practitioner already has.

    How will I benefit from this course?
    The course is unique in capturing both feedback and feedforward data from past and future candidates.

    Feedback data from past candidates clearly shows that the course improves a practitioner's ability to effectively communicate with anxious children. It also shows that any practitioner in any role can manage and reduce anxiety in children under their care. On occasion the anxiety can be prevented altogether.

    It is without doubt that a team of trained practitioners utilising the techniques introduced on the course will dramatically reduce the prevalence and degree of general and procedure-related anxiety in children undergoing medical interventions. This will also lead to a reduction in the consequent morbidity experienced by these children and a global improvement in patient experience.

    Feedforward data is captured prior to the course to allow evaluation of the candidates' prior experience and future needs. This allows us to deliver a course that is dynamic, focused and tailored to the needs of the group.

    What aspects of anxiety and its management are covered?
    The course introduces comprehensive background information regarding the nature, causes and consequences of procedure-related anxiety. The basic and advanced communication techniques utilised in the management of anxiety in children are discussed and illustrated in detail. An integrated approach to the prevention, elective and emergent management of general and procedure related anxiety is presented.

    Is the course approved by professional bodies?
    The course is approved for five CPD points
