Clinical Competencies for Support Workers

Clinical competencies are eLearning modules designed to provide support workers with the learning they need when supporting a person with medical care needs.

MySkill can provide a template for each clinical competency to be signed off by a Registered Nurse, this can be adapted to suit the needs of the employer.
