May 27, 2022

To all Sunshine Hospital Emergency Department Staff,

Next Monday, May 30th, marks the next stage of Training and Orientation to the new Behavioural Assessment Unit (BAU) and The Hub (MHAOD Hub- Level 1 – SHED) for all staff and volunteers who work in the SHED.

Thank you all who have engaged so far in this process, which has included to date:

  • The MHAOD Change Readiness Survey (launched 2/5/22)
  • “Look and See” tours of the new environments (daily from 5/5/22 to 15/5/22)
  • Clinical Scenario Testing of ways of working in BAU and The Hub (17/5/22 & 18/5/22)
  • Staff Champion Training (18/5/22 & 26/5/22) – a special thank you again to these staff.

For this next period (30/5/22 to 18/6/22 excluding Sundays), your Training and Orientation will include:

  • A short video to hear the experiences of our patients and staff in SHED.
  • Scheduled Guided Orientation Tours led by your Champions.
  • Simulation Training developed by the Mental Health Nurse Educators and led by your Champions.
  • Completion of online Training and Orientation on WeLearn, to complement your physical orientation.

These activities have been designed to support and prepare you for working in and around our new MHAOD Accommodations in SHED.

Scheduling and rostering has already commenced for our first training groups. Your leads will continue to provide you with more information over this three week training period, with the support of our Senior Management.

With your support, we are on track for commencement of clinical operations in the BAU in late June (estimated 20/6/22). Operational readiness of The Hub is expected to follow in August.
