This half day course can be run on its own or as part of a 1 or 2 day acquired brain injury course or learning disability course.

The overall aim of this course is to introduce (and or refresh) the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to maintain the safety of and assist to ensure the patient / client reaches their full potential. There will be a clear emphasis on safety of the patient/ client and communication tools and techniques.
