“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.”
James Matthew Barrie, author of Peter Pan
Providing a good standard of care and support is extremely important to me – that is why I have created this exciting package of seminars to actively support learning.
Are you looking for in-house seminars that offer pioneering expertise and practice-based help to nursing and care staff? Look no further as this is exactly what I have created and deliver personally.
I provide tried-and-tested seminars for you and your employees; nursing professionals, curative educators, employees for care and daily living support. I also offer seminars for lead nurses on a range of subjects to improve the professional and social skills required to meet the constantly developing requirements and regulations that have to be met when caring for older people.
My seminars are very popular with participants; they are practice-based and specifically designed to be relevant to everyday health and care practice offering attendees skills directly transferable to their own work places. I believe that the real success of learning and retaining new skills will happen when participants can directly relate the course material to their own practice and areas of interest and concern. I design the seminars to be interactive, practical and engaging; these core values shape the theory and structure of all my nursing seminars and further training sessions.

My standard practice is to check each seminar booking shortly before the event and update the material to bring it all in line with the latest nursing guidelines, national expert standards and the DNQP, IfSG hygeine regulations, the current medical knowledge in older peoples care / geriatric provision and the liability law for care and support.
Over the past 20 years of providing these seminars, some topics have proved to be enduringly relevant and popular for employees and important for all:
