If you are a new employee of NHS Wales your Health Board or Trust will have arranged for you to undertake a Clinical Induction Programme.
This is mandatory for all new employees and will be undertaken before starting work in your clinical area. On completion of the Clinical Induction Programme you will be assessed and if successful you will be awarded the credits for the Programme. These credits are transferable should you move to another role and may count towards the future training you undertake.
Below are the links to the Induction Programmes to show you what you will learn during this period. You will only undertake one of the Programmes depending on the area in which you are going to work. As a guide if you will be working on a Ward then you will undertake the Nursing Unit but if you will be working within the Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy departments then you will undertake the Core Unit. You will advised which Unit you will be undertaking on the first day of your Clinical Induction Programme.
In addition there is a link to the Induction Workbook which you will complete and it is this that will be assessed.
