Flourishing Lives: Learning Disability Policy and Practice

25th October 18:00 to 19:00
‘Bridging the translation gap between learning disability policy and practice in search of flourishing lives.'

This will be an opportunity to hear and ask about the most current research by sociologist Sara Ryan, a Professor of Social Care at Manchester Metropolitan University.

  • This activity will be an opportunity for student social workers currently on, or preparing for practice learning to learn as part of a group, broaden their knowledge base in relation to recent research and academic publications, and discuss how theory can be applied to practice. Students will hear researchers present their findings, and ask about the impact their research has on direct practice in health and social care.
  • Undergraduate students considering a career in social work can learn more about health and social care in relation to social work research and practice to assist their decisions about academia and career progression, and take opportunities to speak directly with practicing social workers.
  • Practitioners in attendance can enhance their CPD, and contribute to evidence based practice in health and social care.
