Training Event

Sussex Community Foundation Trust and Brighton & Hove City Council are offering a series of new clinical skills awareness workshops for 2018.

This one day interactive workshop is for anyone who provides frontline support to a person with their care needs either in their own home, residential service, day service, extra care housing, or respite service.

The workshops will be delivered by an NHS Clinical Skills Lead with a focus on assisting you to increase your awareness of how base line observations and care can support people who may have a health related need. 

The workshops will offer advice on understanding some medical conditions how to recognise changes in a person’s condition in order to provide assistance or to call for further support. It will also highlight preventative measures to promote the wellbeing of that person and promote good practice. 

The workshop will involve demonstrations of equipment and will include the opportunity for you to practice using it and recording data in a meaningful way along with the next steps.
