For example, the potential increased risk of falls and signs of dementia.
Knowing the sources, signs and symptoms, and being able to manage the risks, will help organisations support vulnerable people and will ensure employers meet their Duty of Care to staff and volunteers.
This event is fully funded by the Gas Safe Charity and is part of a programme of activity to raise awareness of CO poisoning in 2018. This includes an e-learning module and webinars.

The Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC), in partnership with the Anna Freud Learning Network, has developed its first ever online eLearning module: ‘Measuring mental wellbeing to improve the lives of children and young people’
This eLearning aims to increase the awareness, understanding and confidence of non-specialist and school staff who support the wellbeing and mental health of children or young people to access the benefits associated with measuring mental wellbeing. This free interactive short course aims to demystify and simplify the whole process of using outcomes and feedback measures to monitor mental wellbeing and is laid out in six easy to follow parts:
  •  Understanding mental wellbeing
  •  Introduction to outcome measures
  •  The benefits of measuring mental wellbeing
  •  Selecting and using measures
  •  Best practice using measures
  •  Using and interpreting data
Outcome measurement has become a focus of funders, commissioners and policymakers as a tangible and reliable way in which to assess the welfare of children and young people in the care of wellbeing services and schools. The process can also have important benefits for the children and young people themselves as well as for associated professionals, projects, interventions and services.
This course features engaging activities and quizzes to illustrate how staff can choose and use measures to monitor wellbeing and how to analyse wellbeing information to drive improvement and demonstrate effectiveness.
To access the eLearning module please go to http://www.corc.uk.net/elearning/ for more information.
