Review of reserved and high-risk actions especially for nurses (level 4 or 5) working in hospital, nursing home or community care.
Reserved and risky operations
Risky actions are those that pose risks to the client when performed. Reserved operations are a specific group within high-risk operations. These are acts performed professionally by individual professionals. In Article 36 of the BIG Act, 14 high-risk actions are classified as reserved actions . One may perform a reserved act only if, in addition to being qualified, one is competent to perform that act.
You will independently go through 7 mandatory e-learning modules , which must be successfully completed, before being able to participate in the practical assessment.
You will be sent observation lists of all actions that will be tested for preparation. During the practical session, you will be practically tested in a simulated setting. Two teachers independently assess the actions using so-called “evidence-based” observation lists .
