Webinars

Information and Knowledge Exchanges

Information and Knowledge Exchange events are exclusively for members of the MND Professionals' Community of Practice, a peer led group of health and social care professionals encouraging and supporting the development of good care for people living with, or affected by, MND.

A conversation with...

The ‘Conversations with...’ series will give you an opportunity to listen to subject matter experts being interviewed on Zoom, using questions submitted by you. They focus on subjects of expressed interest from the professional community, or topical issues, and are run as conversation between a host and subject specialist.

The aim, as with all of our education provision, is to supplement existing health and social care training with MND-specific content to enhance professionals’ understanding of the disease and how to provide the best possible support. In a Conversation with this enhancement is to have specific questions to help develop or clarify practice answered.

No need to book – just drop in using the links provided.

Details of upcoming Conversation with... events coming soon.

Workshops

A workshop is a brief, intensive educational program focussing on techniques and skills delivered to a relatively small group of people. Workshops are usually delivered face to face, but with careful planning could be online. The features of a workshop are that they:

  • pass on knowledge and instruction around a specific skill set
  • provide significant real time opportunities for participants to practice the skills being taught
  • wherever possible will have some form of formal accreditation for the skills being passed on.

We use our MND Association workshops support when a key skill deficit has been identified and it is appropriate for the Association to make a response. The aim, as with all of our education provision, is to supplement existing health and social care training with MND-specific content to enhance professionals’ understanding of the disease and how to provide the best possible support. In a workshop this enhancement is very practical with clear links to practice.

Details of upcoming workshops coming soon.
