We are going to be having a local skills workshop for some of our apprentices and helpers this weekend. I wrote out a draft for the day to include what we wanted to cover and send that out. We haven't done one before, we aren't charging, and we are having it at one of the midwives homes.
I am wondering what other workshops have done as far as handouts? Was everything in a binder? How much information?
What about set up? Is that already done? Did you move from station to station?
I teach nursing students at a community college and am thinking of setting it up like I do when we do lab skills. We have a table set up with the skills we are teaching, an outline of what is expected for that particular skill (like a checkoff list), and if it's something like blood pressure, each student would get some kind of practice sheet. They would have time to practice and record findings on one another. They would also be expected to go home and practice and get so many done by next lab class. Of course, in nursing school, we also have videos and quizzes they must do before they can come to the lab skills. We aren't doing that for the skills workshop, but I think in the future that's a great idea.
Anyone have ideas? Been to one and can share what it's like? What materials and handouts you got?
