Training For New Staff

You are here

Do new staff members receive the same kind of comprehensive training, coaching and supervision?

Without an ongoing plan for training, coaching and supervision in the new practice, or for hiring people who have demonstrated skills in the new practice, the EBP will fade from your organization.

Each staff person should have a personal development plan that incorporates new knowledge as well as reinforcement of existing knowledge.

These personal development plans should map onto the organization’s strategic plan so that there is alignment between strategy and practice.

You can also visit the Network of Practice forums to see what your colleagues and researchers have said. The following discussion was on the topic of training.
