Healthcare Support Worker NMAHP Development Framework for Major Trauma published

The Scottish Trauma Network (STN) are pleased to announce the Healthcare Support Worker (HCSW) Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions (NMAHP) Development Framework for Major Trauma is now published.

The framework is hosted on the STN website and can be found at the link below


The framework will be used by HCSW NMAHP practitioners caring for major trauma patients in any in-hospital in for identifying, planning and supporting learning needs, identifying career pathways and enhancing workforce planning.

This framework is the result of collaborative working between NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and the STN, working closely with HCSW NMAHP practitioners and consulting with the STN Education and Workforce group. It provides specialist content and is a “bolt-on” to the already published NES HCSW NMAHP Education and Development Framework which should be referred to first for detail of four pillars of practice, guidance on how to use the framework and information on accountability and delegation.

This completes the STN’s objective of having a development framework for all NMAHP roles in major trauma. Next steps are to strengthen implementation and gather feedback.
