Barema Professional Qualification
The Barema Professional Qualification in Anaesthetics, Critical Care & Cardio-Respiratory Care is delivered in partnership with Healthcare Skills, is externally accredited by eduQual, and is the only course of its kind to be endorsed by Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland and to have the support of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
|How do you know that members of your company will not -
The clinical area is a complex environment. All individuals are exposed to risk and also pose a risk to patients in care. Moreover, incorrect behaviour of medical representatives puts their company at risk of legal action and costly negligence claims.
This is why it is imperative that the medical representative visiting any area in a hospital is properly trained. In the UK, NHS Trusts are increasingly demanding evidence of appropriate training before reps can enter their hospitals.
The Barema course
A key part of Barema's vision is to, "maintain [the anaesthetic and respiratory] sector's enviable reputation for exceptionally high levels of quality, safety, [and] reliability". Developing the Barema Professional Qualification demonstrates our commitment to fulfilling this vision.
The course has been designed to cater specifically for the needs of Barema members. It includes practical sessions in hospital and is the only course with full endorsement of the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain & Ireland (AAGBI).
One aspect of meeting the needs of our members is keeping it affordable; for this reason it is just one day long (to avoid overnight accommodation) and is run at cost: £445+VAT per person. Barema makes no profit from the course.
NEW FOR 2015 - Course options
In the UK, Trusts are increasingly demanding evidence of appropriate training of the product specialists wishing to visit their hospitals. In response to the increased scrutiny of hospital visitors, Barema has responded by extending the range of options available and creating a suite of training courses to meet all its member companies’ needs:
How to choose which option is right for you:
If your role involves visiting Operating Theatres, choose one of the Theatre Access courses: if not, then choose one of the Hospital Access qualifications.
If you specialise in Anaesthetics &/or Critical Care / ITU then take one of the A&CC option: if your company supplies respiratory equipment, then select one of the CR version of the course.CR options will be available from May 2015: book your place now.
If you havee worked as nurses, ODPs or similar before working in the device industry and you are still currently registered with HCPC or NMC, there is the further option of gaining the qualification through online tests plus practical assessment at your place of work. This gives a lower cost alternative which doesn’t require attending the day’s training. If the online option is of interest, please email Anne.Cooke@barema.org.uk.
All options of the Barema Qualification are recognised by all credentialing schemes (MIA, Reptrax, Who Are You Ltd) as evidence of training, e.g. it confers eligibility for the MIA card (£18+VAT)
