Specialist Nurse Trainers

The Specialist Nurse Trainers are nurses with qualifications in children’s nursing that have a range of experience in caring for children with disabilities in the community and hospital settings. They aim to support children with a disability and additional physical health needs in a variety of settings by providing training and support for their carers.

They work with children from birth to the age of 19, but unfortunately they are unable to offer help for children with ADHD, behavioural problems or other non-physical health needs.

The Specialist Nurse Trainers provide training for nursery/school staff, transport staff, and any carer of a child with medical health needs. The service implements ongoing support to carer’s and also provides resources for training that can be used by other professionals.

The following training packages are now completed and available:

  • Antegrade Continence Enema (ACE)
  • Anaphylaxis, Epipen and Emerade (this service only provided to social care, school transport and pre-school settings)
  • Administration of buccal Midazolam
  • Epilepsy awareness
  • Febrile convulsions
  • Gastrostomy feeding
  • Intermittent self catheterisation/ intermittent catheterisation by carer
  • Long term ventilation training
  • Nasogastric feeding
  • Nasopharyngeal suction
  • Oral suction
  • Oxygen use
  • Administration of rectal Diazepam
  • Administration of rectal Paraldehyde
  • Catheterisation via Mitrofanoff
  • Tracheostomy care

The service operates all year round, Monday to Friday 9am-5pm. Training/visits can be arranged outside of these hours with prior arrangement. They aim to be as flexible as possible as is required to meet the training needs of individuals. Some children are already well supported in the community, but our posts provide an opportunity to compliment this provision.
