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.
