Applications for the Advice Line Training programme are currently closed. Further dates will be made available soon.
Last reviewed July 2022
Aims of the Programme:
To provide definition and clarity of what an advice line service, (also referred to as a help/flare/support line), is and is not!
To explore professional boundary setting, signposting, service development, and working effectively with the wider IBD team at your service.
Understand what resilience is and consider how to build resilience into service delivery.
Increase awareness of and utilisation of available support services to promote patient self-management.
The Advice Line Training will be delivered in a hybrid format with the option of attending face to face or virtually using Microsoft Teams over a full day, with surveys both prior to and after the training session. Resources and references will be available to those that have completed the Advice Line Training.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to fund any travel or accommodation costs if you choose to attend face to face.
The Advice Line Training has been co-produced by IBD Nurse Specialists, IBD patients, and the Helpline team from Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
The training is provided free of charge, but places are limited for each session. We recommend registering for the session as soon as possible!
Dates and how to apply:
The date of the next Advice Line Training session will be 4th October 2022. The Advice Line Training will take place over a full day. (This session is now at capacity, further dates will be released soon.)
