First home delivered Sage & Thyme Foundation Course
Sage & Thyme Foundation Level Training Course
Powys Teaching Health Board, in partnership with care homes and the voluntary sector is introducing Sage & Thyme training, a method of teaching the communication skills required to provide psychological support to people who are concerned or distressed, by recognising, listening and responding to their concerns.
This half-day foundation level training is relevant to all staff who manage complaints, from the very informal at ward or departmental level, whether this be from patients or staff members, to formal complaints through the 'Putting Things Right' process.
DATE: Monday 23rd April 2018
VENUE: Welsh Government Building,
Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells, Powys
TIME: 12.30 Registration
Prompt start 13.00 to 16.00 hrs
(N.B. if you are late you will not be able to take part!)

There are 7 spaces available for Third Sector and 7 for Independent Care Homes on each session.
Evaluations from the first session in February, almost without exception, said the course was good or very good and identified several key points that they could use in their everyday practice to improve communication and bring difficult discussions to a satisfactory conclusion.
The next 2 courses will be on;
15th May and 26th June both from 12.30 to 16.00hrs.
