Calling Attention To All Nurses: Revalidation Help Guide

All Nurses have recently been made aware of the NMC revalidation that is taking place next year.

The new guidance comes into effect from April 2016. Which means every registered nurse will undergo revalidation at some point in the subsequent three years. If you fail to revalidate you will be removed from the register and unable to practise.

Although this seems daunting, Primary Care People wanted to ensure that you are fully prepared for your revalidation. We are here to help you through the process to make it that much easier for you.

The new process replaces the current Prep requirements and nurses and midwives will have to revalidate every three years when they renew their place on the register. The revalidation builds on existing renewal requirements by introducing new elements which encourage nurses and midwives to reflect on the role of the Code in their practice and demonstrate that they are ‘living’ the standards set out within it.

So that we do not confuse you, we have collected what the new requirements are alongside your existing.

To summarise what the new requirements are for revalidation, we have listed them below:

  • Producing 5 written reflections on your practice;
  • Having a reflective discussion with a fellow nurse or midwife;
  • Ensuring that another professional – normally your line manager – confirms that you have met all of the requirements for revalidation.

Many of the requirements that you will have already done as part of the PREP will remain under revalidation, so nothing in those respects will be unfamiliar to you.

In total with the current requirements, this is the list for revalidation you will be looking at as a whole:

  • 450 practice hours or 900 if revalidating as both a nurse and midwife
  • 35 hours CPD including 20 hours participatory learning
  • Five pieces of practice related feedback
  • Five written reflective accounts
  • Reflective discussion
  • Health and character declaration
  • Professional indemnity arrangements
  • Confirmation

You can use the NMC to help start the process already for your revalidation. Here are the steps they suggest you take:

  1. Make sure you have an NMC Online account. If you don’t yet have one refer to our step by step guidance on setting up your account.
  2. Find out about your:Revalidation application date: This is the date by which you must submit your revalidation application.

    Renewal date: This is the date on which your registration expires. Your registration will be renewed from this date if you have successfully completed your revalidation application.

  3. Learn about what you will need to do. Talk with colleagues about revalidation and return to these web pages regularly.

Nurses and midwives should familiarise themselves with How to revalidate with the NMC now and start to develop their portfolio.

Revalidation will build on the requirements that nurses and midwives already need to meet. However, we want to provide a fair and reasonable amount of time for nurses and midwives to familiarise themselves with the revalidation requirements and prepare for their revalidation. We are proposing that the first nurses and midwives to revalidate will be those with a renewal date in April 2016. [1]

Please note that you must still pay your annual retention fee every year to maintain your registration with the NMC. Revalidation replaces the current renewal (Prep) process and you will have to complete the revalidation process every three years in order to renew your registration.

Should you need any further help with your revalidation process we are more than happy to assist you! Please call our dedicated nursing team, or our compliance team, who can guide you in the right direction.

Not only will we be assisting the college with the workshops, but we are also the official sponsor for next years Research Paper of the Year.

We are proud to be working closely with the college to eradicate ideas of ‘the greedy agency’, and offer any help and advice we can to General Practitioners and Practice Managers.

Caring For You, So You Can Care For Others

 

Successful Sale: We Hit Our Target!

We held our charity food sale for our sponsored charity Sense on Friday the 6th of November. All the team contributed to bringing in home-made goods. Ranging from Curry, Lasagne and Pizza, to cupcakes and chocolate baskets.

Everyone joined together to help raise money to save Sense stables rescue donkeys. The team had a goal of £500, and managed to raise half of that during the sale. In total with our justgiving page, we have managed to raise our target and ensure the donkeys have a safe home. As well as delight the children who spend time with the donkeys during their time at the stables.

Primary Care People will be visiting the stables and the donkeys soon!

Thank to all who stopped by and donated.

Give a Home to Two Rescue Donkeys at Sense Stables

This week we are running a food sale for our Charity Sense, which will be both sweet and savoury foods. This will be held at our offices on Friday the 6th of November from 11am – 2pm, so please feel free to come down!

We are also using this opportunity to fundraise for Sense Stables, located in Peterborough. The stables help a lot of children and members of the charity with their learning, and to communicate with animals. Sense are currently trying to home two rescue donkeys to have at their stables.

The Charity said:

“We are getting the donkeys for the people who come here and are unable to ride as they are slightly less intimidating than horses for people lacking in confidence. Also they are great therapy as they are guaranteed to make people smile!”

Please help us reach our target of £500 to create a living environment for them, feed, and to help members of the charity enjoy the Sense Stables.

Red Meat Can Cause Cancer

The internet has gone cancer crazy this morning as the World Health Organisation (WHO) revealed a report on the damaging affects red meat has on our health.

We are often amongst the flurry of warnings of Cancer. It is within all our families, constantly in our newspapers and TV Screens, and unfortunately for some of us personally. Cancer itself is an epidemic that has a good way of striking fear in our hearts as soon as we hear the word.

What seems to be interesting here is that for so long the media and health organisations have painted cigarettes as the monster of cancer. And whilst the report does detail smoking is more harmful, we cannot ignore this lightly.

There have been snippets of being made aware that too much alcohol is bad for us, as is the use of mobile phones even. However living in our modern age we are not probed to detach ourselves from them. Processed meat, and the meat selling industry as a whole also makes a lot of money (alongside alcohol and cigarettes) so we do not know if this revelation will have a huge impact.

However the report states that for every ’50g portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 18%’ [1]. The report does go on to say that we do not need to stop eating meat, but do be careful in the consideration of how much meat we eat.

But if we think logically about the now proven ramifications eating red meat can have, we know just as well how harmful it is. These new results make way for a more substantial change we can have in our diet. Quite often we have been told we must eat meat for protein and iron, however perhaps we have not been sourcing our diets in the right way due to poor health information.

In fact it is known that raising cattle, and beef is more harmful to our environment that anything else in the world. And so a lot of the headlines are still choosing to phrase that we should not eat sausages and bacon which is quite often pork. Due to the amount of money (and damage already done) that is made from beef.

The same can be said for highlighting just ‘processed’ meat, and not meat as whole.

Although raising all animals in agriculture is harmful, and all red meat is harmful to our bodies, we should take this news report welcomingly. To monitor our own health and make a concious effort to see how our diet guides our health and our life.

Let us know your thoughts.
