Crohn’s & Colitis UK are pleased to announce a two-day training programme for IBD Specialist Nurses focusing on the delivery and management of hospital based advice line services for people living with Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
Rapid access to specialist advice should be available to patients to guide early flare intervention, including access to a telephone/email advice line with response by the end of the next working day.
Aims of the Programme:
- To provide definition and clarity of what an advice/help/flare/support line service is - and is not!
- To explore boundary setting and signposting, service development and working effectively with the wider IBD team
- Understand what resilience is and consider how to build this into service delivery
- Increase awareness and utilisation of available support services to promote patient self-management
The training will be delivered at the Crohn’s & Colitis UK offices in Hatfield, and has been developed by IBD nurses, IBD patients and the Helpline team from Crohn’s & Colitis.
Places are limited to a maximum of 25 per 2-day course, so register early!
