Individual Training Needs Identification

The purpose of this form is to gather relevant information on your staff and their roles within an organisation. This form is applicable to all Health and Social Care Services in Ireland.

The ideal target audience is non-clinical healthcare workers; it is ideally completed in interview as some participants may have literacy difficulties.

Everyone working in the service is responsible for the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections and should have the relevant knowledge, skills and competencies appropriate to their role. As seen in the Hiqa National Standard for Healthcare Associated Infections, features of a service meeting this standard are likely to include a monitoring programme. This can be found in 2.4.1. This is in line with best practice, guidelines, national recommendations and legislation. The variety of the monitoring activities reflects the  size, complexities and specialities of the service with the required resources to implement the programme.
