HARTMANN eLearning Programme
The HARTMANN eLearning Programme (HeLP) is an online training programme offering a Foundation and an Advanced Module for the individual level of continence care education.
HeLP is an easy to use training website accessible 24/7 at www.hartmanntraining.co.uk for HARTMANN UK customers.
HeLP offers two levels of training in two separate modules:
- The Foundation module gives a general understanding of the normal bladder and bowel functions as well as the safe use of absorbent continence care products. The Foundation module is aimed at care home staff.
- The Advanced module teaches relevant clinical contents, includes the promotion and prevention of continence and how to manage leakage. The Advanced module is aimed at trained nursing staff.
Both modules underpin the Continence Care National Occupational Standards (NOS). The NOS were developed by Skills for Health in partnership with the Royal College for Nursing, and were launched in 2008. The NOS describe good practice in the workplace in terms of what an individual needs to be able to do, as well as what they need to know and understand.
