What is The Neurodisability Community? The Neurodisability Community is an on-line platform designed to support networking and education for CCH and Neurodisability GRID trainees. It is hosted on-line through Trello. Two ‘boards’ have been created. The first covers training, courses, research, condition specific resources and an area to share projects and learning. The second is specific to START preparation. The Neurodisability Community is trainee-led with input from CSAC and peers. Content is populated by users; the immediate upload allows ‘live’ conversations. User feedback ensures information is easily updated.
Why did we set up The Neurodisability Community? Communication, knowledge and collaborative working are fundamental components of excellent patient care. Neurodisability has small numbers of trainees, spread nationally. It is logistically challenging for trainees to connect. We wondered if an online, sub-speciality learning portal could be the answer; to bridge the barriers, build links, share learning and enhance training experience. A survey of CCH and Neurodisability trainees was carried out and the results supported the need for such a platform.
