Join CHIME International staff and faculty for a four-day online course designed specifically for Learning Disability Nurses who want to use digital innovation to improve their practice. 


Thanks to generous grant funding from the Burdett Trust for Nursing, we have a number of fully funded places on this course. Submit your details here to make an application


Taught over four days the curriculum covers the latest developments in digital health such as shard records and population health.  Our faculty of experienced digital health leaders will bring you up to speed on what you need to know using real-life examples and personal insight.

 The clinic will then focus on Digital Health by nursing process (assessment, planning, implementation and review) and CHIME is thrilled that Gwen Moulster OBE is joining our faculty and will attend every clinic to take students through the Learning Disability Nursing Model: a framework for practice.

 Learning will be enhanced with case studies and examples of best practice to demonstrate how digital health can deliver better care for people with learning disabilities.

Finally, we will focus on you and how RNLDs are true change agents in digital health. We’ll look at how to use your personal capital to make change happen and how to use networks as levers for change. This final session is inspiring and affirming and is aimed at building RNLDs to be leaders in patient-centred digital health.

Each Digital Clinic starts at midday and runs to 4.15pm BST. During this time there will be four, 45-minute lessons with 15-minute breaks in between.
