Care Professionals: Who teaches how to Care?
The Open University would like to invite your organisation to attend their event at Jury’s Inn Edinburgh, to assist them in expanding their service users’ and carers’ network. This network has been a key influence in the education of Social Workers and Nursing staff in Scotland since 2003.
With the major changes to legislation, and strategic direction of integrated services, we wish to strengthen our influence on the educational and practical experience students receive. In order to achieve this, we need to ensure that our group widely represents the population of service users and carers. This partnership event is planned to make carers and service users more aware of the opportunities available to have a voice in assisting the recruitment, education and assessment of future professional care providers.
There is limited capacity at this free event. The Open Univeristy wish to get an idea of the level of interest across different sectors in Scotland. They plan to have an interactive programme between 11.00-15.00 with lunch and refreshments provided. The venue is also close to transport links – see website for location and travel directions.
You can apply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 25th August were they will be pleased to answer any questions. Further details about the planned programme will also be provided.
