Smartphone-based training keeps staff updated on policies and procedures

As part of a government-endorsed business innovation programme launched in response to COVID-19, healthtech business Cognitant Group is delivering a smartphone-based training scheme for care home and community care staff.

The funding comes from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.

Care home staff are under pressure to keep up-to-date with new medical and government guidelines as they learn to safely manage patients.

Cognitant is developing and delivering free, short, high-impact training for all care staff to access via smartphones.

The programme will be shared among care staff by care organisations and by staff themselves using peer-to-peer networks and social media. It includes a self-assessment component and a certificate of completion to ensure quality training.

This new innovative approach will support and train care workers with minimal disruption to their time and work duties. The smartphone-based approach makes the content highly accessible and creates a mechanism to provide updates to care staff as policy and procedures adjust over time.

“The pandemic has put enormous strain on care home staff, who are caring for the most vulnerable members of our society,” says Cognitant Group’s chief executive Dr Tim Ringrose. “This programme ensures that each member of staff has easy access to trustworthy information and training. We will be working closely with the network of care homes to support care home staff in their vital role looking after our loved ones.”
