Aim and Objectives

The film and workshop have been produced as a resource for all professionals by the National Managed Clinical Network for Children with Exceptional Healthcare Needs (NMCN CEN). The NMCN aims to strengthen and develop specialist services for children with complex and exceptional healthcare needs in Scotland. We would like to recommend using the film together with the workshop material to encourage discussion and develop and share good practice. The workshop lasts for two and half hours and includes a viewing of the film. Facilitator notes, exercises, handouts and a certificate of participation towards continuing professional development logs are provided.

The aims of the workshop are to:

  • Increase awareness of participants own feelings in relation to working with children and young people who are non-verbal
  • Reflect on those feeling and their implications for practice
  • Increase confidence of participants to engage with children and young people with exceptional healthcare needs and their families
