Training new HCAs to give compassionate care. - Nursing times
In October 2013, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Foundation Trust set up an academy for all new healthcare assistants, to enable them to develop with the knowledge and skills to deliver compassionate and safe care. HCAs attend the academy before working in clinical practice. They complete knowledge packs in line with national minimum training standards during their probationary period. Evaluation showed that HCAs felt more confident to deliver clinical care after completing academy training.
How to recruit caring and compassionate HCAs. - Nursing times
Heathcare organisations are faced with the challenge of recruiting staff who have caring and compassionate values so need to ensure these can be identified at interview. We piloted multiple mini-interviews as a possible solution to recruiting healthcare assistants. This article outlines how these were implemented and highlights some of the pitfalls of using this approach. Although the work has not been evaluated formally we decided to share our early experiences of using this approach so others can learn from our practice.
Implementing structured preceptorship in an acute hospital. - Nursing standard (Royal College of Nursing (Great Britain) : 1987)
The term preceptorship has been used in the NHS to describe newly registered practitioners' transition from novice to expert under the guidance of an experienced practitioner.

The course is based on the core dimensions of the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework and has received academic accreditation from Northumbria University.
Avian influenza: an agricultural perspective. - The Journal of infectious diseases
Recent outbreaks of infection with highly pathogenic H5N1 strains of avian influenza virus in poultry in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East have raised concern over the potential emergence of a pandemic strain that can easily infect humans and cause serious morbidity and mortality. To prevent and control a national outbreak, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) conducts measures based on the ecology of avian influenza viruses. To prevent an outbreak in the United States, the USDA conducts surveillance of bird populations, restrictions on bird importation, educational outreach, and regulation of agricultural practices, in collaboration with local, state, and federal organizations. To manage an outbreak, the USDA has in place a well-established emergency management system for optimizing efforts. The USDA also collaborates with international organizations for disease prevention and control in other countries.
