STOMP workforce development day to be held in Hereford

Aspire, part of the Thera Group, has organised a workforce development day for social care staff who want to find out more about STOMP.

STOMP, which stands for Stop Over Medicating People with a Learning Disability, Autism or both, is a national project led by NHS England to help stop the overuse of medication.

Aspire has organised a week of information events to help raise awareness of STOMP, culminating in an interactive workforce development day.

The development day takes place on Thursday 26 September with support from Herefordshire County Council and aims to raise awareness of the outcomes achieved by people through effective partnership working.

Aspire also hopes to inspire more people to make a commitment to the STOMP initiative by making a personal or organisational pledge.

Attendees will be joined by guest speakers including Jill Parker, national social care lead for STOMP, and MiXiT theatre company, who will perform the STOMP story as commissioned by NHS England.

Attedees will also hear first-hand from families and care professionals about how non-pharmaceutical therapies and medication reduction planning have had a positive impact on people’s lives.

Tickets to the event are free and can be booked online through Eventbrite. For more information and to book, please visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/stomp-workforce-development-day-tickets-68994288775
