Feedback on the Principles and toolkit to support workforce capability in paediatric intensive care units in NSW

The NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation is seeking feedback on the attached draft document: Principles and toolkit to support workforce capability in paediatric intensive care units in NSW.

Addressing recommendations

In 2019 the NSW Ministry of Health released the Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care Services Consultation Report and Recommendations (PICNIC), which supports the planning and provision of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) services in NSW. The attached document addresses the PICNIC recommendation: ‘2.2.1 Develop principles and a toolkit to support different approaches to development of staff capability, including virtual approaches’.

This document has developed principles to support and enhance the workforce capability of medical, nursing, and allied health professionals working in paediatric intensive care units (PICUs) in NSW and referring hospital clinicians. The material within this toolkit provides a snapshot of some of the educational opportunities, courses and educational resources accessed in tertiary PICUs in NSW. It is intended to be used as a practical resource, containing information to support and enhance capability.

The document was developed with an expert multidisciplinary clinician working group, education providers and workforce managers with a review of the current programs available and future.

Please provide feedback via the ACI secure link below by 20 August 2022 and circulate broadly.
