You might be interested in joining a free webinar, tomorrow (22nd September 2015) from 12 12.40pm, focused on good communication and high quality person-centred care for people with dementia. It is being delivered by The National Skills Academy for Health. Here’s what they say about it:
“Full of useful information, hints and tips, the webinar will give attendees the opportunity to:
- Discuss the importance of good communication skills and the impact poor skills can have on those with dementia and their families
- Consider how best to develop skills to ensure those with dementia receive high quality person-centred care
- Review and discuss a new free resource designed by Skills for Health, the Association for Dementia Studies at Worcester University and other key partners to help the healthcare workforce understand how best to support those with dementia
- Share thoughts and ideas with colleagues and peers from across the sector
If you would like to have a look at Stand By Me before the webinar and have not yet registered to access it, please contact the Skills for Health e-learning helpdesk on 0844 770 3770. The course is free to all organisations but non-NHS organisations may need to provide some additional information as part of the registration process.
