Report writing training for NHS clinical staff


I facilitate half day report writing workshops for nurses and other clinical staff and would like to network with other trainers with a view to sharing resources and expertise. I am mainly interested in short clinical reports, records of telephone advice or information, incident and accident reports, rather than longer structured reports. The course outline is as follows.

Designed for any member of staff who may be involved in, or required to write, a clinical or ‘other incident’ report.

To enable an understanding of the underlying principles involved in, or required to write a clinical or ‘other incident’ report.

Content includes:
• Legal, professional and clinical requirements in report writing
• When and in what circumstances to write a report
• When to refuse or delay writing a report
• Report writing and criminal investigations by the police
• What does a ‘well written report’ look like?

Learning outcomes:
Participants will gain an understanding of the clinical and legal requirements necessary for a report to be of use
To educate participants as to when and in what circumstances reports require to be completed
To educate participants as to the proper construction and layout for particular types of report
To educate participants about what to look for when scrutinising a report written for a third party
An attempt at writing a short report
An attempt at critiquing a short report
