Exploring risk and SafeTy with leArning disabilitY clients in forensic Services: an evAluation oF Talking Mats a visual, Electronic, communications tool

STAY-SAFE Interviews and Training

Over December and January, Sam has been progressing interviews with LD nurses working in a forensic setting. We have been exploring what issues of risk and safety are relevant in the treatment of patients with a learning disability.

On 4th February, SLT Susan Gowland delivered the first of two training days to our cohort of LD nurses. The training covers both basic Talking Mats™ and the ‘Keeping Safe’ resource which has been adapted for use in forensic settings using the data from our interviews. Susan will deliver the second half of this training on 18th February before nurses have the chance to try using Talking Mats™ with their patients!
