As part of Henny's training in her new job, she was invited to take part in a training module on the early detection of eye disorders among children... Initially, she lacked confidence as she had never sat together with doctors and eye health experts before... She also felt she did not have experience outside of her daily duties as a nurse... Following an internship on a paediatric ward, she was invited to help develop a module on how to train others to screen children's eyes... She has found that her experience – as an eye nurse who deals with children every day – strengthens her teaching, as it provides her with many practical examples of eye disorders she can share... When she was asked if there were major changes in herself after becoming a trainer of trainers, Henny said: “The first time I delivered a training session, I prayed that none of the participants would ask questions... Henny has gained a lot by working at the eye health clinic for children... This case study highlights some important issues around involving nurses in the eye team, particularly when it comes to their professional development... Nurses do not or automatically put themselves forward – they often lack confidence, perhaps because they are not traditionally included in planning or team meetings... As a result, nurses can remain under-valued and their considerable skills and experiences can remain under-utilised... Involving all staff in training materials development not only improves the quality of the materials (because everyone brings additional experience and expertise), it can also help to improve self-confidence, create ownership and develop teams... Individual confidence is built up over several events or training sessions – do not expect staff to gain confidence after one initial training event... However, nurses in particular may need to be encouraged by their managers and colleagues until their own confidence develops sufficiently... Written by Sally Crook
