Care Home MDT Educational Sessions - Facing Frailty

Facing Frailty

Interested in providing excellent care for elderly patients? 

Barnet Training Hub is excited to announce the start of a series of education events designed to support colleagues working with the frail elderly, in particular those in care or nursing homes. We will be running 13 virtual one hour training events (1400-1500) covering a wide range of topics relevant to this area with input from local Geriatricians, North London Hospice and Barnet Local Authority. The events will be interactive and highly practical and relevant to medical, nursing and allied health professionals who are interested in this field or are keen to improve their skills.

Please email for the meeting link and to join our mailing list so you can receive latest updates and reminders. We also welcome questions so if you have any feedback or burning questions for speakers please let us know.
