Please see leaflet for details of a Dance Movement Psychotherapy study day at Canterbury Christ Church University, which has relevance for those working in learning disability services.
Following the national report into the Liverpool Care Pathway, a series of workshops are being planned across the Country to look at proposals to improve end of life care for all. Kent is hosting one of these events in November.
Kent has a thriving Palliative Care for People with Learning Disability Network which is run by two Kent Community Learning Disability Nurses. More details of this network can be found here.
To do this Kate is looking to interview care managers and home managers of people with learning disabilities where a Deprivation of Liberties has been applied.
If you are able to contribute please contact Kate directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
East Kent Hospitals have just advertised for a new Adult Safeguarding Practitioner role on nhs jobs at a Band 7.
This exciting new position is a developmental role and would be ideal for a nurse who has experience of working with adults at risk and the Mental Capacity Act.
