Policy and Procedure Training – 7th November 2018

Policy and Procedure Training

Date: 7th November 2018
Time: 9.00 – 16.30
Location: Clayton Hotel Leopardstown, Sandyford Business District, Central Park, Dublin 18


Policies and procedures are an essential tool in improving the quality of health care provision. They articulate consistent approaches for best practice (HSE).  Policies and procedures are often seen purely as paper work, and incorrectly so. If we use them as a way of looking at what we are doing, seeing how we can improve it, and agreeing how we are now going to do it, they can be highly beneficial.

HCI’s Policy and Procedure Training will assist you in the development of practical and effective policies and procedures that can help you standardise processes, providing clarity to staff on how your organisation carry out procedures as well as improve the care your organisation provides.

Who should attend the training?

This training session is relevant to anyone within a health or social care organisation.
