One day PDOC Observer and Facilitator’s course

6 Oct 2021 9:30 am - 4:30 pm Online course

The first day of our online intensive five-day course is open to team members working with PDOC, to both enhance specialist skills and develop diagnostic knowledge of PDOC

This day will analyse the principles of creating an optimum environment, discuss the rationale and methods for accurate observation of responses, examine the role of monitoring and recording responses, reviewing the range of the Royal College of Physicians PDOC assessments and applying these principles. These skills will enable competent scoring of WHIM assessment to use in collaboration with SMART.

Please note places are limited to five and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The cost of this day will be deducted from the five-day course fee if you decide to attend the full SMART course in the future.
