Abstract

Scenario
You work as an experienced plaster technician and are regularly asked to present a short series of teaching sessions to nurses working in accident & emergency, trainee plaster technicians, support workers, medical students and student/cadet nurses.

You are happy to undertake the teaching and consider that as an experienced plaster technician you are able to determine who is capable of undertaking the task and who isn’t. However, one of your colleagues has suggested that all staff who wish to undertake the task of applying plaster casts need to attend a formal course where their skills are assessed and a certificate is issued. Is your colleague correct?
