Thanks to funding from the Burdett Trust for Nursing, the Health Action Training (HAT) team is able to deliver its innovative, specialised training to Nurses and Midwives around the world.
Here’s a short film to see what they do and hear from
a couple of people who have done a HAT course:
The HAT team are accredited by the Royal College of Nursing, the Continuing Professional Development standards offices, and the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland.
Over 95% of participants strongly agree that HAT courses provide a positive learning experience and many comment that the HAT approach is game-changing. Participants are more prepared to deal with stress, to lead on solving problems, and to embrace perceived failures as learning opportunities.
“Health Action Training provides a dynamic and cutting-edge approach to developing Advanced Communication skills, at a time when the healthcare system and people that work in it are under increasing pressure.
Participants that have undergone this training have universally and significantly improved their practice and knowledge. It is suitable in any setting for any healthcare professional. I have seen the development of HAT and have been very impressed with both its academic base and its skills-based approach.” Dame Christine Beasley, Former CNO England (2004-2012), Nursing Now Challenge board member.
Graduate Certificate in Health Action Training
This is a 36-hour course delivered over 12 weeks, starting on Monday 11 September, 1-4pm. It engages participants in a fresh approach to person-centred communication in health and social care. It introduces the unique and groundbreaking HAT approach in fun, experiential, and dialogical workshops. Learners develop a critical vocabulary and a proactive approach to teamwork, practice development, becoming resilient, and improving self-care.
The mission is to help people to connect with themselves and each other, as individuals and communities, supporting a global network committed to an ethics of care and meeting the needs of all people everywhere. We do that by teaching skills of attention, collaboration, and respect, building on the relationships, courage and compassion that make us human and help us grow.
