Distance learning for managers

Posted on March 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Oxford Brookes University School of Health Care is launching a distance learning course for staff in residential and nursing homes. Course leader Sue Hall said the course would focus on the continuing care of older people. “This area has been the subject of much discussion recently and it is increasingly obvious that there is a need for more education for staff to enhance the quality of care in homes,” Ms Hall said. “This ENB accredited short course has already run twice, successfully as a taught course with very positive evaluation from students and managers. It is aimed specifically at qualified staff who are responsible for planning and delivering care.” Ms Hall said the course focuses on quality of care and has a person-centred approach. Topics include ageing and ageism, psychosocial care, evidence based practice, introducing and managing change and resource management. The course will run over two terms (September 2000 – April 2001). For further information contact Sue Hall, tel: 01865 221564, email: smh
