MENDIAS BENITEZ, Cristina et al. Appraisal of a systematic training programme for nurses in haemodialysis. Rev Soc Esp Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2006, vol.9, n.4, pp.55-59. ISSN 1139-1375.

To carry out properly our work as nurses, complementary specialized training is required and we therefore proposed to draw up a training plan to cover this need. For three months we gave a course for nurses who would join our unit to cover staff on vacation. After completing the training programme, an appraisal of it was carried out by pupils and teaching staff, and a comparative study of the appraisal by both groups was carried out. Data were also extracted from the quality of care questionnaires distributed among patients on a regular basis. The most notable conclusions were: 1) The training programme has enabled pupils to acquire the necessary knowledge and attitudes to carry out their work in a haemodialysis unit. 2) This development enhances having qualified replacement staff, with little or no detriment to quality of care. 3) Motivating has been favoured in the Nursing staff of our centres based on the development of the teaching facet and refreshment of basic Kidney Nursing knowledge. 4) Fifteen weeks appear to be insufficient time to develop all the qualities and attitudes, mainly in acquiring knowledge in the theoretical programme. 5) Patients observed and reflected in their evaluation that staff were better qualified.
