- Unpaid carers and the impact of caring
- The importance of identifying and supporting carers
- Carers rights
- Support available, signposting, making a referral
- A ‘Carer Friendly’ approach. Why this is important and the role we can all play
“My knowledge of carers and how we interact with them in general but especially in a professional setting has completely changed – things I hadn’t considered at all previously have been laid out so clearly to me after the session with Carole. I am most definitely thinking carer now!” Lauren, East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust
“The training was really insightful and gave some excellent perspective on how, as emergency responders we can support not only our patients but their caters and family. This will help us to empower everyone to ensure families receive support and care. I would recommend anyone considering the training to absolutely take the time to do it!” Paramedic Practitioner, PPEd, Polegate MRC
“Thank you so much again for this incredible training opportunity! This has had such a positive impact on me both personally and professionally and I feel ready and motivated to share this learning with colleagues and do more for our community!” SPFT
