Make it mandatory. Get more staff in order that people can be released?

Make it a core component of pre-reg training (for doctors as well). What used to be a fundamental of nursing has been thrown out for not being 'sexy' enough, as has education on continence and nutrition. Hence, the plethora of specialists in these areas who spend most of their working life trying to get staff to attend training on basics, rather than using their expertise to build upon what should be a basic level of knowledge.

In any wound treatment it's imperative that hygiene is the first step. Clean hands, medical gloves. All training should start with these imporatnat factors. http://www.gloveman.co.uk

I have found that Nurses - who have a difficult job and very little time off - do not want to give up their time off if they can help it. It isn't healthy to do so anyway.

Make training days part of people's rotas so they don't have to come in on their day off.

Also let night staff have training sessions at night, they don't want to come in on days if they have just finished a night shift!
