Trusted Assessor Training

Trusted assessors facilitate speedy and safe transfer from an acute hospital to a community or residential setting. The course will enable you as a health or social care professional to reflect and evaluate how a trusted assessor model can be implemented to support safe and timely patient discharge. This one-day course is delivered by an inter-professional, clinically focused team from Sheffield Hallam University. The course is suitable for registered health and social care staff whose role it is to support safe and timely discharge for patients.

The course will provide the opportunity for health and social care practitioners to:

  • Examine the drivers for trusted assessor
  • Review and reflect on current assessment processes to support a trusted assessor model
  • Explore opportunities for shared assessment skills
  • Identify areas for further development through an individual action plan to ensure delivery of quality integrated patient care within your service context.

The trusted assessor course provides the opportunity for participants to network and contribute actively to group activities and discussions to advance this way of working. The course draws on evidence from services who have used a trusted assessor model.

Following completion of the course the University will contact attendees to request completion of an impact evaluation, including supplying detailed examples of how your learning has been taken back into your practice.
Due to funding from Health Education England, places on the course are FREE but must be booked in advance.
