Evaluation surveys - have your say.

Your opportunity to tell us how best to support you in your clinical practice.

Registered nurses play a key role in the management of palliative care patients at home. Amongst the various resources available, caring@home offers online resources specifically designed for registered nurses to help promote effective symptom management for those who choose to be cared for and die at home.

The online education modules aim to educate nurses about how to use the caring@home resources to train carers to help manage breakthrough symptoms safely using subcutaneous medicines. Through these modules, we aim to support nurses to improve their confidence, knowledge and skills in training carers to provide breakthrough symptom management.

So far, over 200 nurses have registered for the online modules. We are thrilled with your positive response and hope to see many more of you continuing to show your support for caring@home during 2019.

To assess the impact of our efforts, Professor Deborah Parker and Dr Serra Ivynian from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) are working to evaluate the effect of these modules and resources on nurses and carers. One way of being a part of the evaluation is to complete the short five-minute survey prior to starting the online modules, and the post-education survey upon completing the modules. You may complete the modules/surveys at your own pace and stop and start as you wish using your caring@home website log in.

On behalf of the UTS evaluation team, we would greatly appreciate if you could take five minutes to complete the pre-education and post-education surveys to help us understand how to best support you in your clinical practice. Your thoughts are important to us and involvement in the evaluation provides a great opportunity for you to express your opinions about the modules and resources, and for us to understand what works best for you and what doesn’t. So far, 58 nurses have completed the pre-education survey and 18 nurses have completed the post-education survey. We hope to engage with more of you during the year.

If you are interested in providing even more feedback on caring@home, stay tuned for more information about other ways to participate in the evaluation.
