This inspiring and unique study day is for members of the multidisciplinary team who support families of adults and children with complex needs and life-limiting conditions, whether in health, education or social care. Practitioners are equipped to better understand the lives and priorities of families and carers in order to communicate effectively and enhancing co-productive working.

Using her own family’s story, anecdotes, current research, reflective practice, group work and discussion, Rachel provides an interactive, dynamic and memorable training day. Every delegate will leave better informed with practical ways to improve their future practice through greater understanding of;

  • Lived experience
  • The emotional journey of families
  • Evidence base around effective communication
  • Barriers to engagement
  • Non-verbal communication and appropriate language
  • Co-production and working in partnership
