RESTORE2 and STOMP training for current staff

Due to unforeseen technical issues, if you sent us an email about attending a Restore2 Mini and STOMP session before the 1st of July, we may not have received it. Our technical issues have now been resolved and we would invite you to contact us again by emailing Restore2@thera.co.uk. We apologise for any inconvenience caused

What is RESTORE2 and STOMP?

Restore2™Mini has been developed to give support workers and those providing direct support the confidence to trust themselves when they see soft signs of illness. It will help you to communicate these valid signs of a person’s health declining to medical professionals.

STOMP is a national project helping to stop the overuse of psychotropic medicines. People with a learning disability, autism, or both are more likely to be given these medicines than other people. STOMP is about helping people to stay well and have a good quality of life.

Why should I attend the training sessions?

As you work closest with the people you support, you will know when something changes about them better than anyone. It can be frustrating to be ignored or misunderstood by medical professionals who don’t recognise the expertise you have. The RESTORE2 mini and STOMP training will give you the tools you need to advocate for the people that you support.

What happens on a training session?

The training focuses on using the SBARD tool (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation, Decision). The tool will help you to confidently secure the right health care at the right time. This includes requesting medication reviews.

You will learn:

  • How to identify the soft signs of illness in the people you support
  • Know what information to provide, how to communicate and what keywords to use when speaking to health professionals
  • Know who to call for healthcare help first
  • Build your confidence to deal with health professionals and when advocating for the people you support
  • Enhance the quality of support you provide

Where does it take place?

The training is being delivered virtually through Microsoft Teams or Zoom. It will last between 2 and 3 hours. If necessary, you can receive face-to-face training in your local area.
