What Works

Practical, interactive sessions are of greatest value in enagaging trainees. Opportunities for more experienced C me Advocates to mentor new comers are important in retaining enthusiasm from those who have been to previous training weekends. In October 2014 Community Advocates participated in an particularly effective interactive role play around the introduction of needle exchange in prisons where they gained experience of participating in delegation and practiced negotiation skills.

Action Plan

A five point Likert scale was implemented for January 2015 training to ensure consistency across other Hepatitis NSW programs. This will be used measure changes in knowledge and skill for all future training sessions.

A 10 point rating scale was used to measure knowledge and skill before and after training October 2014 taining. This proved to be a useful tool in measuring the overall change in knowledge and skill.
