Learning and Education can provide you with a list of training opportunities to help you understand the nature of Disability and its impact on staff. Below you will find a list of e-learning modules which are available on LearnPro.
This module aims to increase your knowledge on Disability and how it impacts on Health and Health care services. Using a range of research and statistical information including explanations of the different models of Disability, the module shows how people with a Disability are often the most marginalised and vulnerable group in society.
Visual Impairment Awareness
An increasing amount of people face some type of visual impairment. Visual Impairment also increases with age and often services often do not take into account needs of people who are visually impaired or blind. This module has been designed by Visibility Scotland and gives practical examples of eye conditions and suggests good practice for staff in working with people who have this impairment.
Accessible Information Training
In light of the NHSGGC 'Clear to All' Accessible Information Policy, this module explains how we can all start to change how we produce information so that it is jargon free and accessible. Practical suggestions are also given in this module when producing documents of any kind including letters, leaflets and emails.
Deaf Awareness Training
Out of a UK population of just over 60 million an estimated 9 million people will have some degree of hearing loss - equivalent to 1 in 7 of the population. You are likely, therefore, in your normal day to day professional role to come into regular contact with people with a hearing loss and who are deaf. This module has been developed to support guidelines which NHSGGC have produced to develop good practice when working with staff and patients who may Deaf, Deafened or Hard of Hearing.
