A 3-day course. (2-day version also available.)
There are certain things that everyone working in this area 'really should know'. This course covers them.
This course is designed for professionals who work daily with older adults and, as the title suggests, it is designed to impart the very most important knowledge and skills for doing so. It therefore covers person centred care, the National Service Framework for older adults, matching professional with service user, and, above all, how physical health, mental health, the environment and behaviour all interact.
We continuously monitor the quality of our training by obtaining feedback on the two key scales of relevance and presentation from every course delegate. Below are the average ratings for the last ten runnings of this course.
Average Presentation rating: 96%
Average Relevance rating: 91%
