The online neurodisability teaching programme for trainees is now up and running on Wednesdays at 1-2pm.
The sessions cover a range of topics relevant to neurodisability, and training more widely, and will be delivered by consultants and therapists. The sessions are aimed at neurodisability GRID trainees, but will be relevant to any trainees with an interest in neurodisability, including neurodisability SPIN trainees, community GRID trainees and neurology GRID trainees.
We thought this would be useful over the coming months while most people have been re-deployed to different areas of working and many of our usual teaching and learning opportunities are not possible. We hope this will enable trainees to keep connected to the curriculum and neurodisability. We feel that, especially now, it will be useful to have more of a face-to-face connection between trainees across the country.
The sessions run using MS Teams in a webinar format and last for an hour, with time for questions using audio/video at the end.
