The Stroke Competency Toolkit (SCoT) is a free Continuing Professional Development (CPD) website, specific to stroke care and is based on the NHS Education (NES) Stroke Core Competencies (2005).
www.scotonline.org provides an interactive format which enables health and social care staff working within Scotland to evidence their learning and demonstrate their knowledge of the stroke core competencies through reflective practice.
There also has a series of specialising competencies in stroke care that are profession specific. All competencies are aligned to the NHS Knowledge & Skills Framework.
The SCoT is aimed at health and social care staff who require to evidence their knowledge of the Stroke Core Competencies and how this is applied to their clinical practice. This applies to staff who are:
Staff who compete the SCoT have clear evidence that they are competent in the stroke core competencies, and if applicable specialising competencies. It encourages reflective practice and peer support.
To get started register here and complete the online tutorial. If you wish to use the toolkits and you work outside of Scotland you can download the PDF documents here free of charge.
www.scotonline.org was developed by Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland in partnership with NHS Scotland, NES, Edinburgh University Dept of Learning & Technology, Scottish Stroke Nurses AHP Forum (SSNF) and the Scottish Stroke AHP Forum (SSAHPF)
“The SCoT is user friendly and easy to complete. It has really organised my CDP. It just fits!”
“Being new to stroke it has really encouraged me that I am on the right track in my learning and development.”
“It has really brought the team together. We have a better understanding of each others roles. I am not afraid to ask for help.”
“With so many demands in the workplace, it is a real timesaver!”
