Training & Education Resources
Training and education is vital to delivering a high quality service in order to optimise patient potential and experience of the service.
Training and education is a subgroup of the Clinical Effectiveness Group and is co-chaired by Ashleigh Knowles (Community Clinical Lead for the Neuro-Rehab Network and Clinical Lead for HMR Community Neuro Team) and Gemma Smith (Neuro-Rehab Network Facilitator and Specialist Physiotherapist). The group includes NHS staff from different professional groups, involved with neuro-rehabilitation at different points of the pathway such as acute, post-acute and in the community. The group held its first meeting in May 2016, and meets every 2 months to take forward a plan of work.
