Monday 1 – Friday 5 July
£785 (early bird rate £750 until 1 April 2019)
The SMART (Sensory Modality & Rehabilitation Technique) is a standardised investigative and assessment tool specially designed for patients with prolonged disorders of consciousness (PDOC). SMART is recommended as a tool of choice in the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) Guidelines 2013.
The training is designed for senior neurological clinicians (AHPs, clinical psychologists, nurses, doctors) and will enable the delegate to meet the person specification for assessors of PDOC as outlined in the RCP guidelines. The delegate will develop both the skills and knowledge of PDOC and the SMART investigative process, gain skills in the analysis of the investigative process, identifying where the client is currently placed on the diagnostic spectrum and possess the skills to create a bespoke intervention plan.
Following completion of the training the delegate will be required to complete one clinical SMART assessment, with full support from a mentor, in order to complete the SMART accreditation process. Re-accreditation is required every four years.
The SMART training has been adapted to be delivered in a flexible range of formats to meet the needs of the service provider and the delegate. Training can be provided through either
A five-day intensive course (1-5 July 2019)

Further options for training can be offered to meet the needs of both the service and or delegate. Training for SMART can also be delivered at a designated local establishment. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
