In 2005, my eldest son was born with a bump. He didn’t breathe on delivery and was diagnosed ten weeks later with having severe brain damage. From then, my husband and I hurtled down an unmarked road of loving a child with complex disabilities and life-limiting epilepsy. Today I use my memories, experiences and skills to support families like mine and inform the practitioners who care for us.

This inspiring and unique study day looking at effective communication and co-production with relatives and carers of adults and children with complex needs. Whether in health, education or social care, as part of the multidisciplinary team, communications team or tertiary support, co-production is increasingly recognised as a hallmark of excellence. Using family’s stories, anecdotes, current research, reflective practice and group work and discussion, this is an interactive, dynamic and memorable training day. Every delegate will leave better informed about the priorities and perspectives of relatives and carers with practical ways to improve their future practice to promote cost effective, excellent care through effective communication and co-production.
