NHSP health screener diploma observation checklists March 2019

  • 1. Level 3 Diploma for health screeners (Newborn Hearing) March 2019 1 Level 3 Diploma for health screeners (Newborn Hearing) Assessment criteria The Level 3 Diploma for health screeners (Newborn Hearing) qualification is a national qualification for all screening staff, who are not qualified healthcare professionals currently on a professional register, working within the NHS Newborn Hearing Screening Programme (NHSP). The qualification is designed to reflect work-based learning and compliment previous methods of training. To comply with the NHSP advisory board and national programme specifications learners are required to successfully undertake the mandatory qualification assessment criteria which includes an Observed Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) delivered by the national NHSP programme or by an NHSP recognised centre using appropriately qualified assessors. Health visitors (HV) Registered Nurses (RN) and Midwives (MWs) who carry out automated auditory brainstem responses (AABRs) are not required to complete the Level 3 Diploma for health screeners, but are required to successfully undertake an OSCE. This document details the: • qualification assessment criteria: mandatory and recommended • performance observation checklists

  • 7. Level 3 Diploma for health screeners (Newborn Hearing) March 2019 7 Performance observation checklists The following screener assessment checklists have been developed: 1. Informing parent – Well Baby 2. Informing parent – NICU Baby 3. AOAE screening 4. AABR screening 5. Referral to audiology 6. Using the NHSP national IT system The table below provides guidance on how to complete the checklists. The comments section should be used to record details of how the screener met each of the statements. Annotations indicate where the statement supports Level 3 Health Screener Diploma assessment criteria. E.g.: (2.4.3) = Unit 2; learning outcome 4; assessment criteria 3. Completed checklists should form part of the screener portfolio of achievement. Level of Achievement Competence demonstrated NA Skill/activity not applicable or not assessed. O Screener observed skill/activity without practical participation. A Screener performed skill/activity with assistance. Demonstrated limited knowledge and understanding. Recognised own limitations.
