The Neurodisability Community (TNC) online teaching sessions were initially set up over the summer of 2020 in response to the first wave of COVID to enable trainees to keep connected to the community child health and neurodisability grid curriculum, and also to have more of a face-to-face connection between trainees. In response to positive feedback, these sessions are continuing monthly, on the 4th Wednesday of the month, 1-2pm.
We are aware from discussions with colleagues and from survey results that, for a large number of trainees, COVID had impacted on neurodisability and community child health sub-specialty training opportunities and experiences. With the current situation for many trainees, this is likely to be ongoing to some extent. We hope that the online webinars will continue to provide opportunities for peer support and to connect with other trainees over the coming months, as well as neurodisability focussed learning.
To enable a more co-ordinated approach, the paediatric neurodisability and CCH teams are working more closely together to bring a monthly theme to the sessions:
- February – Safeguarding
- March – Inequalities, advocacy and action
- April – Medical complexity
1st, 2nd and 3rd Wednesday of the month, 1-2pm – Community Child Health webinar
4th Wednesday of the month, 1-2pm – Neurodisability webinar
