Effective Medical Chaperoning

In 2004 the Committee of Inquiry looked at the role and use of chaperones, following its report into the conduct of Dr Clifford Ayling. It made recommendations, which included that all chaperones should receive training. This half-day* course is appropriate for all clinical and non-clinical staff wishing to perform the role of a formal chaperone in a health care setting.

To complete a formal chaperoning training it is advised that the delegate:

• Attends the 3 hour chaperoning training session
• Arranges to spend time with a practice nurse/doctor to gain practical skills required to chaperone
• Answers all questions on the provided work sheet and have the answers checked by a clinical member of staff
• Once confident, puts themselves forward for practical assessment. All sections of assessment should be achieved
• At this point training will be complete.

Course Objectives

  • Explain what the term Chaperone means.

  • Understand the rights and needs of the patients, covering special circumstances.
