Code: BH/22/0713 Carers and Families of Brain Injury Survivors

These sessions are kindly provided by the Sussex Acquired Brain Injury Forum (SABIF). The SABIF aims to develop a clearer understanding of acquired brain injury (ABI) within the ABI community in Sussex for the benefit of people with brain injury in all its forms.

Five events are planned, led by experienced professionals and stakeholders. This will give you the perspective of neuropsychology, occupational therapy, social work, lived experience, law and more.

The sessions are

·         Carers and families of brain injury survivors

·        Care Act assessments of brain injury survivors

·        Psycho-social issues following a brain injury

·        Mental capacity, ABI and social work

·        A round table discussion about how we can develop social work practice for people with an ABI.

The recent ‘James’ Safeguarding Adults Review highlights the importance of training to staff working with people with ABI and this is a great opportunity to develop your understanding of this complex topic. You can attend as many of the sessions as you like – please apply separately to each event you would like to attend.

Francis Lacy Scott, chair of the Sussex Acquired Brain Injury Forum says “Working with people an ABI presents professional challenges; the extent of the impact of the brain injury can be hidden, presenting challenges to assessing the impact on daily living and decision making. The SABIF is pleased to bring together leading experts in this series of events to develop understanding and enhance practice in ABI social work.”

Code: BH/22/0313 Emergency First Aid - Adult Social Care

This course is for Adult Social Care staff and enables first aiders to give emergency first aid to someone who is injured or becomes ill. The objective of the qualification is to benefit delegates by enabling them to attain the knowledge and practical competencies needed to deal with a range of first aid situations and/or take on the role of first aider in the workplace.

This qualification is for people who have a specific responsibility at work, or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic first aid to people in a range of first aid situations.

The programme has been amended due to the Covid-19 outbreak and infection prevention control measures and special instructions for attending this course are attached.  Please ensure these are read and understood before applying and attending the programme. Delegates can also request a full copy of the risk assessments that cover this training course.

Please note: - this course is open to adult social care staff across the council and across the Independent Voluntary Sector. Whilst the course is delivered in a covid secure way, please consider with your manager whether it is essential for you to attend as the delegates may be a mix of staff from different workplaces.

Access to the Boardroom

Please note, this room is accessed via a number of stairs and is therefore not accessible to wheelchair users and people who may have difficulty using stairs . If this will affect your ability to attend this course, please email the Learning and Development Team by email to - so alternative arrangements can be made for you to attend first aid training.

There are four practical assessments that delegates will have to complete throughout the course, and these will be observed by the trainer.   During the course the trainer will also carry out on-going assessment to assess the delegates’ knowledge, skills and understanding related to the assessment criteria.  As there is an element of physical activity on this course suitable footwear and clothing should be worn. 
There is also a theory assessment/multiple choice paper at the end of the course to assess competence and gain certification. 

The delegate will need to demonstrate, without assistance from a third party, practical tasks such as CPR with the casualty on the floor to simulate a real-life situation. If the delegate is unable to carry out this practical assessment, for example, because they cannot kneel, then they will not pass the course and will not gain the qualification.  In exceptional circumstances, delegates who are not able to kneel may be able to carry out the task from a standing position, and this is acceptable.

This qualification is valid for a period of 3 years, and will be issued to those who have met the required standard.. The learner needs to re-take the qualification before the certificate expiry date to remain qualified by attending a full one day/six hour Emergency First Aid at Work course.

Delegates will be provided with a course manual to keep.

Code: BH/22/0394 Self Neglect - Senior Practitioners and Lead Agencies

This is a specialist course for practitioners and managers who are regularly working with complex situations where people are believed to be self neglecting and at risk of harm. This may include social workers, assessment team managers, housing managers and senior practitioners in provider services who regularly work with complex cases and who may have to take a lead role in convening a self neglect planning meeting.

The self-neglect procedure, part of the Sussex Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedures, sets out a clear multi-agency approach to working with people who self neglect.  The course will review the procedures and will provide an opportunity for sharing knowledge and expertise, exploring limitations and challenges, evaluating good practice, escalating concerns where there are areas of uncertainty, and managing multi agency relationships and input. Participants will be expected to come prepared to share examples, and to work together on some case material.

Applications are welcome from partner organisations in the city, albeit that applicants are expected to have a significant role in co-ordinating responses to self neglect. (There is a seperate course for people requiring a foundation understanding of the issues of working with people who self neglect.)
