Lecture Overview

Nurses are well skilled in their assessment ability - but assessment does not just stop at the bedside. As Nurse Educators, we need to assess if there is a need for the education that we provide. Join Hilary Bush and Zoe Youl as they take you through a step-by-step explanation of a rigorous needs assessment framework that is used at Ausmed Education. A vital tool that can be easily applied in any setting and a must-watch for all Nurse Educators.
