Applications are now open for Scottish Huntington’s Association’s award-winning CPD course, Huntington’s disease – an enabling approach to supporting families, designed and delivered in partnership with the University of Stirling.
The 14-week module is of benefit to all practitioners working in health, social care, advocacy and community organisations who currently, or may potentially, work with people with Huntington’s disease (HD).
The flexible blended-learning module will commence with two study days on 2 and 3 September 2019 at the University of Stirling.
While keeping the person with HD central to the discussion, the module emphasises the importance of considering the whole family as affected by the disease, and the psychological, emotional and social changes it brings.
By drawing on current research and practice from the field, across the UK and around the world, students will gain an in-depth understanding of HD with a view to providing improved treatment, care and support.
There are no minimum requirements to enrol on the course, which is the equivalent of a 3rd/4th year module in an undergraduate degree programme and is worth 20 credits at SCQF level 10. Students can opt not to undertake the assessment which gives these credits if they wish.
