Titleworth Neuro Awarded University Accreditation for Training Programme
Specialist provider of brain injury rehabilitation services, Titleworth Neuro, has developed a comprehensive in-house staff training programme accredited by the University of Brighton. Designed by Titleworth Neuro’s Director of Clinical Services and Consultant Neuropsychologist, Dr Anita Rose (pictured), the course will consist of 18 modules in three learning units. Completion of the training will mean that staff not only achieve consistent, high quality standards, but will also know that their workplace learning is recognised as having academic quality. Dr Rose has created three assessment based learning units, each with six modules.
The first core unit captures the basic elements of understanding Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and neuro rehabilitation. The second has six more modules related to the use of multi-disciplinary therapies in ABI neuro rehabilitation and, in the final learning unit, staff will study psychosocial issues commonly experienced in neuro rehabilitation.
The first part of the course will run from January 2013, with the aim of putting all current Titleworth Neuro staff through the full programme by mid 2014.
