Summary: In October 2011, Leicester City Council’s Social Workers and Care Management Officers moved from working in specialist teams (i.e.: Learning disability, Older Peoples Mental Health, Physical Disability), to working in generic, locality based teams. Although some informal transfer of knowledge has taken place within teams, time pressures mean that formal training is also needed.

Objectives: By the end of the course, learners will understand more about physical disability – e.g. most common conditions and how they impact on people, what happens to the brain when injured, and why it is important to work with the person rather than the symptom. They will:

• Receive basic medical information on the most common causes of physical disability. (This may be in presentation format or otherwise in the format of information to take away.)

• Be reminded of the Social Model of Disability and the importance of working within this model, including use of appropriate language.

• Be provided an overview of how disability relates to the Equality Act 2010.

• Have the opportunity to consider how to apply the learning when assessing and working with customers and their carers.

• Ultimately provide a better service to people with physical disability / brain injury.

• Understand the role of the Core Brain Injury Team at Leicester General Hospital in relation to customers with an Acquired Brain Injury.

• Use Continuing NHS Care and Decision Support Tools.

• Discuss Personal Budgets and why they can be so important for disabled adults
Please note that we would also like the trainer to work with a service user in order to give information about helpful and unhelpful approaches from professionals. We have service users willing to support this training. Please indicate in your submission whether this is something you could work into the day.
