Capacitating nurses in home-based care provision

Since May 2021, HAP is supporting the implementation of home-based healthcare models. In this framework, 76 nurses from Dibër and Fier regions were trained to perform standard nursing procedures such as: treatment of decubitus, care for stoma, treatment of lymphedema, placement of nasogastric tube, performance of electrocardiography, etc. The training of nurses has been conducted in three phases: training in the classroom, in the workplace and in a private healthcare center specialized in home-based care. HAP’s support has also continued in the direction of enabling nurses to identify patients who should receive healthcare services at home, planning home visits, structuring and documenting the nursing visit as well as expanding the range of services they will provide at home. Furthermore, the monitoring and evaluation plan was developed, which is being implemented continuously.
