Learning Disability Services Series
Making Research Count is running a series of CPD certified seminar workshops to explore different aspects of working with people with learning disabilities.
The workshops feature speakers involved in current research in this area, and provide insights into research messages, with a practice focus, with time for discussion and debate.
Dr Martin Stevens, Senior Research Fellow at the NIHR Health & Social Care Workforce Research Unit, King's College London chairs the series.
