BETTER at Home with Better Training, with Dr Anita Flynn, will take place on Tuesday, July 3 from 9.30am to 4.30pm at the faculty of health and social care at Edge Hill University.
It has long been recognised that children and young people with complex and technology needs do “Better at Home”.
It is essential however that parents and care givers are confident and competent to provide the 24/7 care that is required once back at home.
Key to this is having access to high quality and consistent training.
This conference will explore some of the challenges and solutions in enabling access to high quality training.
