Train the Trainer – Self-care It is a well-recognised fact that those individuals who have access to appropriate information and understand the range of options available to them make better informed decisions regarding self-care.

Effective communication enables individuals to identify their strength, assess their needs, develop and gain the confidence to self-care. Empowering people to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing can help them remain independent for longer.

This workshop prepares the participants to train and develop other professional and informal carers to deliver care using digital innovation for service users with complex co-morbidities and for people in the wider population who experience the aging process.

It is anticipated that participants will become the self-care champions of their workplace and will be kept up to date with developments nationally and locally in the arena of self care.
