Attaining Competency

Level I: The session will form Level I of your training required for chest drain insertion.

Level IIA: You will use this base knowledge to be able to participate in a workshop and perform the practical procedure on a manikin, or animal model, using a '4 stage teaching style'.

Level IIB: You will have an opportunity to remind yourself of the steps using the session online, prior to the first time you perform this procedure on a patient under senior supervision. An appropriate work place based assessment (WPBA) form will be used to log your activities.

Level III: Once you have performed a certain number of chest drain insertions, you will complete an appropriate WPBA on a patient and be signed off as being competent by your education supervisor.

Discuss attainment of competency with your educational supervisor.
