Workshop Objective

Latest guidance on the role of Chaperones in primary care states that everyone should receive training in their role and responsibilities as a chaperone. This half day session fulfils that  objective and ensures that all team members feel confident with their role and can act in the interest of the patient.

On completion of this half day workshop, delegates will understand the role and responsibilities of a chaperone in a primary health care environment. Delegates will focus on the best practice guidance issued by the Clinical Governance Support Team which outlines the role and skills required. Chaperones have a dual role – protection for patients and staff – and both aspects will be fully covered in this session.

Who should attend

This course is designed for all those staff who are called upon to act as a chaperone in primary care – it is particularly suitable for:
• Reception staff
• Administrators
• Healthcare assistants and support workers.

Workshop Duration

Half Day
