Network training programme report for 2023

Greater Manchester Neuro Rehabilitation and Integrated Stroke Delivery Network logo

The development of professionals involved with providing support and care to our patients and their families is a key priority for the network and overseen by our Workforce Development Subgroup.

Since 2016, we have facilitated a comprehensive programme of training and education that moved online during the pandemic but has now evolved into a mix of face to face and webinar based events. Our programme consists of regular introductory level training days aimed at new starters as well as diverse portfolio of educational events for more experienced staff.

All of our online content is hosted on our YouTube channel which now has over 400 subscribers and features over 100 educational videos that have been viewed over 25,000 times and for 3,381 minutes.

Our website has a substantial training section including 27 E-learning packages which have been developed with local clinicians.

Key achievements in 2023 were:

  • 6 online webinars and 9 face to face training events including our annual stroke conference which was also live streamed on YouTube
  • Our YouTube videos were viewed 9,931 times for over 1,400 minutes and we gained 130 new subscribers to the channel
  • Our most watched video was “Understanding Functional Neurological Disorder” with 1,273 views
  • Our most popular video recorded in 2023 was “Ebrahim’s story – Understanding different cultures in supporting neurorehabilitation” with 441

We also asked for more detailed feedback and examples of how people had used the learning in their clinical practice. One clinician commented about an event they attended:

“Excellent quality course, great venue, accessible parking and lovely food. Thank you to all at the network for your continued hard work and support for teams. Thank you for your support and drive to enhance Stroke rehab services for the benefit of services and patients.”
