Code: BH/21/1139 Anti Racism and White Privilege (for Foster Carers) (ZOOM) (EVENT FULL)

Race is a protected characteristic that refers to an individual's race, colour, nationality, and ethnic or national origins. This session is targeted towards supporting foster carers working in a racially diverse environment.

This is a bite-size 2 hour session during which we will have the chance to come together and think about issues of race in the work of foster carers. It is based on discussions, sharing views, learning, ideas and experiences.

This anti-racism session has been designed to:

  • support foster carers to strengthen their understanding of race equality and develop the knowledge and skills to identify and address racism in their workplace
  • introduce participants to the main concepts of race equality, such as privilege and structural racism within a safe, open and reflective space

Code: BH/21/1424 Epilepsy Awareness, Seizure Management and Buccal Midazolam - Zoom

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 an Epilespy Handout (workbook) which must be read by all learners prior to attending the Zoom session. This pre-reading should take you about 30-60 minutes.

After the virtual Zoom session there is an online theory assessment. This is an “open book” assessment meaning that learners are allowed to refer to the Epilepsy Handout (workbook) during the assessment.

For successful completion of this course and to be awarded a certificate of completion learners must have read the Epilepsy Handout (workbook), have attended the Zoom session and passed the post course online theory assessment.
