Rehabilitation assistant training

This new programme, available to purchase and deliver under licence, will provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to become valued and effective rehabilitation assistants.

The workshop is designed for people who will become rehabilitation assistants, people who are keen to be involved closely with patient care from both a nursing and therapeutic stand point.

The programme may also be useful to anyone with overall responsibility for implementing the staffing of rehabilitation assistants, physiotherapy assistants or health care support workers within a health and/or care setting.

What’s included in the programme?

By purchasing a license to deliver the programme you will receive a learning and development toolkit that includes detailed lesson plans, a facilitator’s guide and a full suite of presentations and quizzes to help reinforce learning.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this programme, participants will be able to explain:

  • The role they are taking up
  • The expected outcomes from implementing what they’ve learnt
  • The patient group they are targeting
  • The interventions they have available to them to achieve the desired outcomes
  • The principles of rehabilitation
  • What statutory and mandatory responsibilities they have both clinically and from a corporate perspective
