Facilitator in Focus
“I was involved in the introduction of eviQ education in my previous work place as an alternative to our orientation program. The previous program, while informative and comprehensive, required a lot of education resources to maintain current and evidence based content. We introduced ADAC through our online learning platform that monitors and manages enrolments and completion of learning and assessments. This organisation was in a rapid growth phase, establishing clinics throughout Australia and internationally. This change to our education system enabled the organisation to recruit and train non-chemo competent staff in a timely and uniform way, encouraging staff to be self-directed in their learning, with the administration of the leading taking place in a central location. Workshops can be attended in person or via webinar, making a useful tool for any size organisation.
As an educator in a busy tertiary hospital, our office often gets enquiries regarding cancer specific issues and CVAD maintenance issues. I have found referring these enquiries to eviQ or ADAC very useful. Rather than dealing with all the education regarding these competencies I encourage the staff to complete the online modules and then assist with the practical skills workshops. This way we know that staff in other specialities have had access to the same education and procedures of CVAD management or chemotherapy safety. It makes coordinating cancer and chemotherapy education across a large and busy facility so much easier.”
