Learner experiences of the ‘Caring for PDoC Patients’ course Autumn 2019
As an SLT experienced in working with PDOC patients this course has made me think from a different perspective, which will enhance my future practice, particularly in my interactions with family members. I would definitely encourage all new and existing SLT to complete the course to enhance their knowledge and skills.
I found this extremely beneficial in developing my skills as a nurse. I came into this course (& placement) a complete novice. … I now have a better understanding of what it is to live with these conditions.
There was a really broad range of learning media through which to explore this challenging subject… I learnt about areas outside of my usual clinical role, such as physiotherapy within acute settings & supporting discussion with families over organ donation. I enjoyed the wide variety of options to learn including detailed articles or soundbites, tapping into different modes of learning.
