Toolkit will help nurses to lobby for training funds

A new toolkit to help nurses make their case for funding for training has been launched by Education for Health.

The toolkit contains disease specific business proposals that nurses can use to establish their current level of knowledge and plan their professional development in a way that links with the quality framework, knowledge and skills framework and national workforce competencies.

The education charity said that the toolkit currently covers proposals for obtaining education in heart failure, COPD, asthma, spirometry and AF.

Proposals for diabetes and stroke are expected to be added in the next few weeks.

Monica Fletcher, Education for Health's chief executive, said: ‘The language of the NHS is increasingly becoming a business language and there is much talk about return on investment. [The toolkit] enables any health professional to clearly demonstrate how their chosen education will contribute to their organisation's key performance targets.'
