Spotlight on Care: Advanced Assistants

1st April 2022
Our three Lindsey Lodge Advanced Assistants support in all clinical areas, and undertake a technical instructor role within occupational therapy, physiotherapy and touch therapeutics, as well as running our Lymphflow clinics.

They underwent an 18 month intensive training programme of addiitonal skills and competencies, from a diverse range of experts and settings, to become autonomous practitioners to enhance practice across all areas of the hospice and across seven days.

They demonstrate a high degree of extended knowledge, skills and experience using a bespoke competency framework to evidence practice.

This innovative initiative is responsive to patients’ needs and offers a unique development opportunity for healthcare assistants and service development within Lindsey Lodge and palliative care.
