September 2018 dates released for 'Complex Rehabilitation in the Multidisiplinary Context' - CPD Level 7, 30 Credit Module in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University

September 2018 dates are now available


The Cheshire and Merseyside Rehabilitation Network is sharing its expertise by collaborating with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) to produce a Masters level module focusing on complex rehabilitation.

The network is an award winning, unique group of six partner organisations that provide supportive, active and extended specialist rehabilitation care to adults following traumatic injury or serious illness. With its significant reputation and high quality outcomes, The Walton Centre-led collaborative, alongside LJMU, is being used as a model of best practice for the next generation of clinicians.

Carys Williams is the Performance, Information and Research Manager of the network. She said: “I’m so pleased that the network can get involved in educating health professionals in this way and give them skills they can then use to provide excellent care for future patients.

“The thirteen-topic module provides students with the opportunity to actively reflect on their role as part of the multidisciplinary team and critically analyse current research and evidence in the field of rehabilitation. It will support them in the provision of a holistic approach to patient centred care”

Students will learn and understand the ethos of rehabilitation and multidisciplinary team-working, which will provide them with specialist knowledge to supplement ongoing clinical experience.

Lorraine Shaw is the subject Head of Nursing for LJMU. She said: “It’s important that we work with partners like the network to improve patient care. Providing a multi-disciplinary module reflects the environments many of the students will be working in.

“It’s really quite unusual to get this variety of healthcare professionals, encouraging students to have in depth discussions at a Masters level. I think it’s a great module for anyone involved in rehabilitation, whatever their role.

“The network gives students the chance to truly experience what multi-disciplinary working is. I think this is the start of something that will grow.”

Teaching sessions will include workshops, group discussions and lectures. The students are encouraged to actively participate in teaching sessions, share their learning to date and contribute to tasks set within sessions.
