135202| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Conduct Robust and Aligned Employee Performance Reviews/Evaluations that Create Loyalty|

Overview:

Employee performance evaluations are an essential factor in the development of employees and the growth of the company, yet most managers and employees dread them.

Why? Because they often have the wrong focus – a focus of telling the employee what they have to do to improve or why they are getting less than stellar ratings for the year.

It is time to eliminate the dread of performance reviews and turn them into a robust conversation about personal professional growth and aligning the individual with goals that move the both individual and the company forward.

Components of healthy performance reviews are ensuring goals are focused and achievable, removing blocks the employee may face, asking appropriate questions and giving feedback, both negative and positive.

When managers and supervisors learn to set a positive environment for honest discussions, the appraisal process becomes a constructive discussion that builds relationships and increases performance. It can be duplicated throughout the year with positive results.

Don't be satisfied with the results of past performance reviews.

135198| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Uncomfortable Conversations for HR Professionals|

Overview:

Difficult conversations are, well, difficult. Difficult for the person leading the conversation as well as difficult for the person on the receiving end. However, they don’t have to be hurtful, relationship ending, or embarrassing.

The ability to handle difficult situations and conversations is a skill that can be learned and improved.

As an HR Professional, it is required that you not only are willing to have those difficult conversations with your employees and coworkers, but that you are able to ensure that relationships are preserved while having those difficult conversations.

This session with Rhonda will show you how. You’ll be given an easy, and fun, framework to keep you ON THE RIGHT TRACK with those conversations that start with “We Need to Talk”.

Why you should Attend:HR Professionals are the first line of defense (and complaint) in a company. All issues, problems, and personality clashes end up on your front door, and you are expected to deal with them.

How do you do it? How do you tell an employee that another employee has been complaining about them? How do you get them to be willing to not only go back to their job, but to not blow up at their coworkers because they are embarrassed and angry?

HR Professionals have the unenviable job of having difficult conversations. It won’t be easy. It won’t be fun. It needs to be done.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Improve your communication so that the conversations stay calm and respectful
  • How to take a potentially explosive situation and keep it calm for everyone involved
  • How to give positive and negative feedback and ensure your partner is receptive to what you are saying
  • What to say, how to say it, when to say it, all the while being in complete control of your emotions
  • How to frame your conversation so that everyone can maintain their pride

135197| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Before You Press Send: How To Stop Wasting Tons of Time Writing Emails That Don't Get Read|

Overview:

Email is the number one most widely used communication tool in business today; it surpassed the telephone for follow-up required communication years ago.

However, while it is the number one most widely used communication tool in business today, it is also the number one most widely misused and abused communication tool. This fast-moving interactive session is designed for anyone responsible for overseeing outgoing correspondence and email throughout the business day.

Why you should Attend:You are being ignored. Nobody's reading your emails.

It's true. You're writing these memos and sending emails and no one's reading them. You're emailing important project updates and attaching minutes from meetings, but when everyone shows up, it's quickly evident no one has read the email or even opened the attachment. They received it, but they didn't read it.

That's a problem and a huge time waster. In addition, many professionals today tend to multitask with email. Any emailed correspondence bearing your organization's name must be absolutely error free.

Even a careless mistake in an email can damage a business leader's reputation and can make an entire work group look bad. The solution lies in decisions you make Before You Press Send!

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Five sure ways to get people to actually read your email!
  • The top seven credibility-robbing email mistakes and how to avoid them
  • The importance of a complete email subject line-and how to write one consistently every time
  • How to make sure e-messages with your organization's name on them are absolutely error free with no embarrassing "bloopers"
  • The secret to using bulleted lists with email
  • When you should NEVER send an email
  • BONUS: A few practical punctuation pointers to eliminate run-on sentences along with hot topics such as tone appropriateness and SCREAMING IN ALL CAPS


Who Will Benefit:

  • SHRM
  • ATD
  • PMI etc.

135186| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Fascia and Anatomy - Peterborough - November 2020|

This one day course looks at the apparent similarities between the Tendino-Muscular Meridians (from Chinese Medicine practice) and the theory and structure of the Anatomy Trains approach to myofascial linkage within the body.

Starting with a challenging overview of 'what' the meridians may represent, the day then focuses on the binding sites or 'stations' – areas of tension/structural gathering of tissue, which if released can effect a much larger area, and change function within the myofascial system.

The Tendino-Muscular meridians or Sinew meridians will be explored first in terms of muscular areas that they cover. Anatomy Trains will follow.

Exploring the common ground between these two systems, but using acupuncture to release these tight areas, can offer a new approach to treatment – notably in effecting large areas and patterns of dysfunction quickly, and allowing points distal to the areas being worked on with manual therapy to be used as an adjunct to treatment.

135185| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Effecting the Affect - Peterborough - September 2020|

Specific Areas
- Understanding emotion, mood and feeling within the central nervous system
- Insomnia
- Anxiety Disorders

135184| The Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists| AACP Acupuncture Foundation Course - Cheshire - October 2020|

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer participants a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow them to practice acupuncture in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting. The course provides a Western medical approach to acupuncture - grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. This course does not cover the traditional Chinese medical approach to acupuncture, except where Western scientific theory and evidence can be used to explain concepts of traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. fascial planes and meridians).

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants with a rationale for using acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions. Topics covered include the laboratory and radiological research which is used to explain the mechanism of acupuncture analgesia; current evidence from acupuncture clinical trials research; and the non-specific "placebo" effects associated with acupuncture analgesia. In addition to needling classical acupuncture points, participants will be introduced to the concept of myofascial trigger points, and the use of acupuncture needling for pain associated with myofascial trigger points.

Students must:
- Have HCPC physiotherapy registration
- Have CSP membership
- Be able to practise acupuncture in a clinical setting between the course parts
- Give the tutor informed consent to receive repetitive needling (with particular regard to being or trying to become pregnant)
- Be able to treat three separate patients in a safe and legal environment for their case studies. Failure to do so may affect your professional HCPC registration. (see AACP website for safety guidelines)

135078| ONCORE ePD| The Veterinary Nurse’s Role in Dermatology Clinics|

Dermatology is a key area of clinical work in primary practice, and the role that nurses can play in assisting with management of dermatological conditions has historically been overlooked.

Nurses can and should play an integral role in history taking, diagnostics, client support, improving adherence to treatment – and much more.

This course aims to offer guidance on setting up a Dermatology Nursing Clinic, including tackling any pitfalls which may arise. Through tutor guidance, peer support and shared experiences you will become more equipped to develop the clinic within your own practice environment and around your own clinic style.

This type of clinic requires knowledge of a number of simple diagnostic skills and microscopy, and this course aims to assist you with becoming more confident on how to perform these, the equipment to use and when to select which tests. This course will also look at clarifying the role nurses can play in selection and administration of therapies to help achieve case resolution.

This course will help you feel more confident in performing dermatology nursing generally, have an understanding of the nurse’s role in a vet-led team, and the delivery of a dermatology clinic service; and aims to be valuable whether you are just starting in dermatology nursing or developing an already existing service.

This course is endorsed by the Veterinary Nursing Dermatology group.

135024| Multiple Locations| Prevention and Screening in Diabetes Care|

Our prevention and screening in diabetes care module offers a comprehensive educational opportunity to critically investigate and evaluate current and prospective national and international methods of preventing type 2 diabetes through effective evidence based prevention opportunities. Also, investigation of current and emerging effective methods and evidence concerning complication prevention in people diagnosed with diabetes, through rigorous evidence based resources and opportunities to support people to live well with diabetes. 

What's covered in the course?

Excess weight is the greatest factor influencing the diagnosis and progression of Type 2 diabetes, with over 80% of people with the condition nationally and internationally, considered to be either overweight or obese.  Differing presentations of type 2 diabetes, including lean type 2, which occurs more commonly in people from South Asian backgrounds can also be potentially prevented. People already diagnosed with diabetes who are overweight or obese have a twofold increase in stroke risk (within the first five years of diagnosis) and have an ongoing risk of Cardiovascular Disease at twice that of those without diabetes, and this remains the leading cause of premature deaths in people with Type 2 diabetes globally.

There is significant variation in diabetes outcomes across the UK and internationally. Investing in diabetes management has been shown to reduce the risk of complications, however evidence exists that a significant number of people do not have access to either effective care processes or opportunities to help them to avoid preventable complications of their diabetes.
