Enriched Dementia Care Planning
The course was a roaring success! We have all been inspired to take various actions. Many thanks to Harrisons and in particular our trainers who were excellent. We have recommended the course again to our trust, CNWL.

I have dyslexia and can find some courses do not cater for me. This course has been the best I have ever attended. I've not needed to ask for help due to the hand outs and teaching styles. I have really enjoyed every aspect of this course.

Excellent course. Good because it included both theory and practical. I has given me a lot of ideas for treatments that I could implement in my practice. Please keep me informed of any future courses.

I found this course very beneficial, I feel the course was set at the correct level, very easy to follow and understand. I enjoyed all aspects of the course. I hope to attend a similar course on lower limb function.

The Assessment and Treatment of Clients with Perceptual and Cognitive Dysfunction - 27.09.2012
In my working career (since 1994) this has been the first formal course to be of significant practical benefit to improving my day to day assessment and treatment. I congratulate Austin Claffey on his excellent teaching approach, his knowledge of the subject matter and his delivery. Thank you.

NEW CPDonline tool
At last! – Harrison Training take the Pain out of CPD...
Harrison Training have developed a long-awaited, easy to use continuing professional development (CPD) tool that really does make it easier to create and maintain a Health Care Professionals’ legally required CPD Portfolio. CPDonLine (CPDoL) can be easily accessed from the Harrison Training website and provides an interactive, online portfolio system in which to organise and record CPD evidence. The facility provides comprehensive and up to date descriptions of CPD terms and requirements; easy to follow guidance as to how to write and maintain your portfolio; and useful links to a wide range of CPD resources. For me, this beats any of the current CPD tools available to Occupational Therapists because it is electronic and this offers a number of attractive features. My office space is small with very limited space for filing documents and files. With CPDoL, I no longer need to transport and store paper documents and heavy lever arch files - I can upload certificates and written notes, store them electronically, and then dispose of the paper as necessary. I have the option to request electronic versions of course notes and certificates for the future to upload direct into CPDoL. I can now dip into my CPD Portfolio from a number of different interface terminals, including my iphone which offers me the opportunity to update quickly after a CPD event from home, office, or train! Finally, CPDoL is visually attractive and fun to use and this is very motivating. Whereas in the past I have worried about being behind with organising my CPD documentation and slow to get on with it, I now feel confident that I will be able to keep my portfolio interesting, accurate and up to date.

I do not think I am alone when I say that I have attempted, struggled and failed on numerous occasions to find a way of recording and maintaining my CPD activities. However, the CPD online tool has finally provided me with a method of achieving what I once thought was an onerous task. What I like about the tool is that I can access it wherever I am (at work or at home) without having to carry around a huge paper file. The sections provide a step-by-step approach to recording, maintaining and evidencing CPD activities in a reflective and meaningful way. The explanation drop boxes are really helpful as they walk you through what you need to be recording. Not only does the tool provide you with opportunity to record present CPD activities it provides advice on how to develop and plan for your future CPD, so for me the tool feels like it is a living thinking and as it grows I know it will positively influence and support my career development.

Charitable Activity

Part of our Company vision is to support those who are disabled and have limited access to healthcare resources, economic independence, and choices in their lives and occupations. We have found that these people, particularly in developing countries, also tend to be poor, disadvantaged, and marginalised within their communities.

We believe that we reap what we sow. To reflect something of our values, beliefs and purpose, we are committed to giving of our time, skills, knowledge, and profit, to benefit those who have less, particularly where disability is an issue.

Harrison Training has partners in Romania and Tanzania, with whom we collaborate, to provide practical and tangible support that impacts the daily lives of individuals affected by disability, and their caregivers.

Examples

  • An access audit and advice on inclusive design – Hargita Christian Centre, Transylvania
  • Provision of adaptive and medical equipment to initiate a Home Loans Scheme – Romania
  • Provision of a Mountway Aquila bath lift to a children’s hospice in Braşov; and to a family caring for five of their children affected by Muscular Dystrophy
  • Walking aids and wheelchairs
  • Provision of equipment for an older persons home
  • Advice on design and accessibility for the Eben Haezer Older Persons Home
  • Participating in a conference for disabled people, those who work with them, and caregivers
