SMART Assessor Training
Monday 15 – Friday 19 October
£785 (early bird rate £750 until 16th July 2018)
The SMART (Sensory Modality & Rehabilitation Technique) is a standardised tool specially designed for the assessment of patients with prolonged disorders of consciousness, as recommended in the Royal College of Physicians Guidelines 2013.
The full five day course is designed for senior neurological clinicians (AHP’s, Clinical Psychologists, Nurses, Doctors) as a first step to gaining their accreditation as SMART assessors. This intensive course will enable delegates to develop both the skills and knowledge to be competent in the observation and assessment of patients with disorders of consciousness. The course also aims to develop skills required to conduct SMART assessments, including for treatment planning. The course is taught through tutorials, formative assessment and practical sessions.
Following completion of the course delegates will be required to complete one SMART assessment, with support from a mentor, to complete the SMART accreditation process. Re-accreditation is required every four years.
