In House Staff Development Programmes

Many drug treatment services ask us to design their staff developement programmes. This can involve putting on a series of courses throughout the year or doing training needs analysis against DANOS competencies and designing a programmes to fill the gaps identified.

One treatment service wanted to start offering a Needle and Syringe programme so we provided an in depth accredited 5 day course in Working in a Syring Exchange and backed it up with mentoring and coaching sessions in the first six months of the programme.

Another asked us to offer a range of courses in motivational interviewing, care planning, solution focused, but to ensure throughout the training we were encouraging better discharge planning to help them meet their targets.

Yet another asked us to facillitate their annual awayday as part of the development programme, which included providing a group of staff with the NOCN Tackling Substance Misuse Practitioners Level 3 Award.
