ACOMHS Peer Reviewer Training (Online)

5 May 2020

2:00pm - 4:00pm

Via Microsoft Teams

As we are currently unable to carry out peer-reviewer training from the College due to COVID-19 and government advice, we will be offering online training sessions. These sessions will take place on Microsoft Teams and be facilitated by a member of the ACOMHS project team.

Training is open to all staff working in ACOMHS member services. This includes consultants and specialist registrars (SpR), registered mental health nurses and nurses in training, ward managers and matrons, support workers and wider MDT. This is an excellent opportunity for professional development, to contribute to the peer review process and to facilitate networking and the sharing of best practice.

The first training session will take place on 5 May 2020 at 2:00pm - 4:00pm. Booking is open now, if you would like to attend please fill out the booking form here.
