Huntington’s disease university module opens for applications from practitioners

The groundbreaking course ‘Huntington’s disease: an enabling approach to supporting families’ is open for applications from practitioners involved in the care and support of people and families impacted by Huntington’s disease.

The short course aims to develop greater understanding of Huntington’s disease and its impact on the people and families who live with it, while enhancing professional skills, knowledge and capacity to provide support.

Now in its 10th year of delivery, learners will gain an in-depth understanding of the disease, considering the physical, psychological, emotional and social changes that it can bring to the individual, loved ones and carers.

The 12 weeks of online learning begins at the end of September, supported by staff from the University of Stirling and Scottish Huntington’s Association. Assessment will be by a single written report and the module is worth 20 credits at SCQF level 10/QCF level 6.
