Code: BH/20/1126 Adults CPD - Ethics, Values and Equalities in Mental Health

Register your interest in this 20 Credit, Masters Level 7, course by the 10th July 2020.  

The module offers an in-depth exploration of issues in relation to ethics, values and equalities in the field of mental health.  The overarching aim is to enable students to reflect critically upon the contested nature of mental health and the debates in relation to ethics and values that this engenders.  An exploration of service users’ experiences of stigma, discrimination and inequality will be central to the module, as well as a critical perspective on power.  Students will also examine the development of users and carers as consumers and researchers of mental health interventions, and what this means for social inclusion.

Code: BH/20/1657 Epilepsy Awareness, Seizure Management and Buccal Midazolam - Microsoft Teams (EVENT FULL)


This course examines the classification and  management of seizures in the context of adults with learning disabilities.  It also covers the role of staff in supporting people with epilepsy, the psychosocial impact on the person and the administation of emergency medication.

During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown delivering face to face training is a lot more challenging. The guidelines around buccal midazolam/emergency medication administration training state that clear face to face training is best practice. However adapting to ensure we are protecting all involved is essential.

Therefore this session will consist of  a virtual conference teaching resource which will be live and led by an experienced trainer who is  able to answer any bespoke questions around epilepsy. This creates the safest and best training option currently.

The learning gained during the live session will be supported by a workbook which must be completed by all learners prior to the session.
