This event will bring together healthcare workers from Plymouth and Cornwall. The event is a music intervention to facilitate communication with people who have difficulty using words to communicate.
The intervention is designed based on key findings from the Beyond Words project and delivered as professional development for health workers (social workers, support care workers, nurses, doctors, educators, clinical psychologists, speech therapists).
The session will include a 20-minute presentation on key findings from the Beyond Words project and a 60-minute interactive music intervention tailored to healthcare workers to explore the use of music to facilitate communication, inclusion and wellbeing.
There will be time for discussion and feedback.
Refreshments will be provided and no music experience or background is necessary, all welcome!
