Question 2It’s very essential for healthcare industry to be able to offer good training to their employees because the effects brought about by poor training in the medical field can be devastating. It is important to be able to set a good foundation for health practitioners to be able to instill confidence and knowledge to be able to save lives. While considering training techniques, it is important to be aware of the expectations that are in mind at the end of the training. What are the goals of the training, who is the trainee, what is the budget of the training, what is the timeline for the training and what training resources and materials are available for the training.The most suitable training method for the healthcare employees would be Stimulation. This is where the trainees are exposed to imitations of the real work. Let’s say for example where a hospital facility or organization provides a dead body for examination and lab works. In that case the trainee is allowed to get hands on the body and perform tasks on it. The main advantage of stimulation is that the trainee is able to acquire knowledge first hand by being able to see and do as the trainer instructs him or her to do. It therefore becomes easier for the trainee to perform the trained tasks later because he or she already has the skill from training. The main disadvantage of the training method is that it is costly. It requires a lot of finance to keep a steady supply of test objects or organs and also to set up facilities that are well equipped for each trainee to be able to have his or her own working space with the test subject. In the end the advantages of stimulation outweigh the disadvantages when the factors at risk are considered.
