RCSI/IMSTA HealthCare Industry Representative Credentialing Programme

The Faculty of Nursing & Midwifery, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and IMSTA are delighted to announce a new innovative Credentialing Education Programme for Healthcare Industry Representatives (HCIRs) entering healthcare facilities for the purpose of conducting business. The programme aims to enhance the standards of training for HCIRs visiting healthcare organisations, provide assurance to health service and hospital staff and support public and private health service providers fulfil their duty of care to protect patients and ensure safe outcomes. Patient health, safety and confidentiality are the primary focus of the programme.

This bespoke blended-learning programme entitled: “HealthCare Industry Representative Credentialing Programme” will be delivered over 12 hours. The first four hours of the programme will be delivered, in one face-to-face in the RCSI at 9am, and finishing at 13.30pm.

A further 8 hours of content will be delivered on-line via the Faculty’s online “Moodle” Platform. These can be undertaken at a time and location convenient to the participant. Participants will be required to complete a short Multiple Choice Quiz (MCQ) on completion of the programme.

FEEDBACK FROM MEMBER WHO ATTENDED MARCH CREDENTIALING PROGRAMME: 

“From an Industry Representative perspective, I feel it is very important to attend the course and attain the Credentialing Card, as our industry and the people we engage with on a daily basis require us to be ethical, compliant and, above all, be competent to ensure better patient care and patient outcomes.”

John Donovan, Sisk Healthcare /MED Surgical
