Centralised Health Awareness Training

The purpose of the training is to increase awareness of the various conditions listed below and to provide teachers with advice on how to recognise deterioration in a child’s condition as well as contact arrangements with staff from the Southern Health and Social Care Trust (SHSCT).

Schools are encouraged to avail of this training as School Nursing teams are not available for training outside these training sessions but are available for advice and support if required. 

The Lead Nurse for School Nursing has emphasised that it is important that schools contact the School Nursing Team if a child is newly diagnosed with an allergy, and presents in school with an adrenaline pen, so that an action plan can be put in place.
