BARS Administration Certificate

British Association of Retinal Screeners (BARS) Administration Certification

Since City and Guilds was withdrawn there has been no formal education material or certification for administration /failsafe staff in Diabetic Eye Screening.

BARS Education Group has therefore created a certification which takes elements of the original City and Guilds unit and expands it to cover a wider knowledge and skills framework.

You will have 12 weeks to complete the course and there are 8 modules.

Each provides information, links, and there are 6 quiz sections.

By the end of the course the candidate will understand:

·       The Principles of Screening

·       Information Governance, Informed choices & Consent

·       Impact of Screening

·       Quality Assurance

·       Understanding Diabetes

·       Administration & Patient Management Systems in DESP

·       Exclusions & Suspensions

·       Communication

The course also includes a competency assessment to confirm proficiency upon the patient management system, confidentiality, and the processes for dealing with individuals.

The qualification is hosted by Gloucester Retinal Education Group (GREG), and a certificate validated as a BARS approved course will be available on completion.

This course is FREE OF CHARGE, and we are hoping that Programmes will use this qualification as a tool for staff development, as well as helping staff to gain confidence in their role.
