Nurses and allied health professionals can greatly improve their clinical and nursing skills efficiently and effectively with the evidence-based resources provided in Dynamic Health Skills. Resources focus on all areas of clinical skills including technical skills, patient education skills, communication skills, cultural competency, critical thinking and decision-making skills.
Dynamic Health Skills Resources Include:
These documents provide an overview of a procedure or skill, the desired outcome, facts, step-by-step instructions, red flags, and information on what needs to be communicated to the patient and their family. The goal of a skill topic is to help develop competency, critical thinking skills and communication skills.
Skill Competency Checklists
Skill Competency Checklists complement the Dynamic Health skill topics described above. Management can use the competency checklists to assess a nurse or allied health professional’s competency in areas including prerequisite skills, preparation, procedure and post-procedural responsibilities.
Nurses can learn how to provide culturally competent care to patients of various cultural backgrounds. This information can help your nursing staff communicate effectively with patients and their families and help nurses provide care that is appropriate to the culture and the individual.
Patient Training Skills
Patient training skills are intended to help your nurses better communicate with and educate patients, making them more informed and engaged and thus more satisfied.
