The current global health crisis continues to have an impact on all aspects of healthcare around the world.
The need for high quality training and education, particularly in relation to respiratory care, continues despite restrictions remaining in many hospitals.
In response our dedicated team of Product Educators and Specialists have developed a suite of virtual resources including virtual training demonstrations and virtual education programmes designed to support healthcare professionals with their training needs across the Armstrong Medical respiratory care portfolio.
Training Site with QR codes
To assist hospitals with essential training needs, we have launched a dedicated product training site. It is easily accessed either via the QR code on our devices or by typing the link, also available on our devices.
Readily available training supports ICU staff to continuously improve patient outcomes, with instant access to professional training content streamlining the care delivery process. Staff can access training at a time that works for them. It also helps to protect staff and patients with reduced personal contact.
Meet the Clinical Educational Team
“As Head of Clinical I am responsible for the Clinical Education Team, who support healthcare professionals and international partners to fully understand and use our range of respiratory medical devices. As a registered nurse, with my PgCert in education and a nursing background in ICU, HDU/CCU and recovery, I have gained an in-depth, first-hand knowledge of respiratory therapies and equipment and understand the environment they operate in. This invaluable insight, along with my desire for evidence-based research, means I can lead my team with a strong clinical focus and ensure our standard of training and support is one of the best in the market.”
“I have joined the team as Clinical Nurse Advisor at Armstrong Medical. I work alongside the Clinical Education Team to provide support and education to healthcare professionals using my knowledge and experience as a registered nurse working in respiratory wards and intensive care units over the last eight years. I am passionate about empowering healthcare professionals with knowledge and training that will positively impact patient care, ensuring they are kept up-to-date with current research and guidelines. The Clinical Education Team provides high quality training across a wide range of specialities in hospital, such as the emergency department, respiratory wards, theatres, recovery and critical care for neonates or adults.”
“Working in various roles within Armstrong Medical has equipped me with a deep level of understanding of our products; from the manufacturing process right through to providing the most appropriate respiratory support to the most vulnerable of patients. Today, as the Senior Educator, I specialise in the critical care setting; training and educating on respiratory care therapies and medical equipment. The support we offer varies from the upskilling of new staff on product knowledge and application through to working with healthcare providers and international partners. We have the knowledge, skills and technology to provide tailored training all over the world.”
“Specialising in Neonatal Products, I am passionate about helping healthcare providers and international partners gain an understanding of respiratory therapies for the tiniest of patients. Demonstrating how our NeoFlow range of medical equipment can alleviate some of the pressures faced within this sector, whilst also enhancing patient comfort is key to our messaging and support. I believe in building strong and lasting relationships with neonatal teams across the globe and I take great pride in helping teams implement Armstrong Medical products within their provision of care.”
“Prior to joining our Clinical Education Team I worked in our International Sales Team with responsibility for distributors based in Europe and the Far East. This experience has given me an understanding of the pressures experienced by clinicians and it helps to shape our training and support offering. With a particular focus on our perioperative sector, I equip healthcare providers with a clear understanding of how our products can improve patient safety in anaesthesia. I enjoy working closely with our international and domestic sales teams, as well as keeping our employees up-to-date on the latest research and advancements in therapies.”
“Providing a critical support role to the Clinical Education Team involves the planning and co-ordination of training sessions and virtual events from our base in Coleraine, Northern Ireland. With over 20 years customer service experience I ensure our busy schedule runs smoothly and the team operate in a well organised environment. It gives me great pleasure to support the team and play a part in their role of educating a wide range of audiences.”
