Job summary

The Mediroom Team are committed to developing our staffs' ability to provide the best patient-centered care. We are looking for a clinically experienced Mediroom Practitioner (RN or ODP) with excellent teaching, mentoring and assessment skills, to join our existing ASCR Recruitment, Retention, Education and Well-being Team.

You must be currently working as a Mediroom Practitioner at NBT and have experience of supporting new staff through their preceptorship. In addition to supporting new staff you will support existing staff with their ongoing professional development, including providing 1:1 support and group skills training.

We are looking for someone who is well-organised, driven, compassionate and enthusiastic. You should have significant post-registration experience and be able to demonstrate an expert level of scrub practice, acting as a professional role model at all times. You will be working 50% of your time as a Practice Facilitator and the remaining 50% in your clinical Mediroom role.

Main duties of the job

As a member of the ASCR Education Team, the Practice Facilitator will promote the delivery of high quality patient care by the provision of direct supervision, training and preceptorship support for Mediroom Practitioners. This will include working alongside Registered Nurses & ODPs who are undertaking preceptorship and/or development programmes.

The Practice Facilitator will act as a point of escalation for preceptors who require support in managing individuals who are struggling to demonstrate the required standards of practice in accordance with the Trust's capability procedures.

The Practice Facilitator will support development of the learning environment and competency frameworks benchmarked against national standards of care.
