SocialPrescriberPlus™

London based Training Programme for Social Prescribers and Link Workers

Who Should Attend?

The one and a half day SocialPrescriberPlus course is ideal for

  • Individuals wishing to train as Social Prescribers or Link Workers prior to applying for a role with an existing community Social Prescribing scheme, or for a Link Worker role in a Primary Care Network or GP Practice.

  • Members of existing Social Prescribing schemes wishing to enhance their skills and learn the latest techniques for Active Listening, Motivational Interviewing and Health Coaching

What Will I Learn?

The SocialPrescriberPlus course is built around the HEE Competency Framework for Care Navigation at the Enhanced Level. It also incorporates the concepts and principles of Personalised Care (articulated in the NHS(E) Long Term Plan) as well as the very latest NHS(E) and National Association of Link Workers guidance and advice for Social Prescribing Link Workers.

The SocialPrescriberPlus™ Program comprises 3 half day modules, two of which take place on the same day and the third which takes place 6 - 8 weeks after the delegates take up their new role.

The intensive one day workshop covers the first two modules and is designed to provide delegates with all the techniques and approaches needed to allow them to commence work as a Social Prescriber in a GP surgery or a community based Social Prescribing scheme. The workshop is unashamedly practical in nature, providing lots of opportunities to practice Active Listening and Motivational Interviewing in a safe and supportive environment, and discussing the day to day practicalities of joining and working with a PCN or Practice and building relationships with external community groups and the voluntary sector.

The workshop covers the essential Social Prescriber skills of Active Listening, Motivational Interviewing, Health Coaching and Relationship Building. It also introduces delegates to a range of referral, coaching, evaluation and personalised-care planning tools and templates - essential to ensuring the Social Prescriber can successfully master the day to day practicalities of working within a GP Practice or voluntary based Social Prescribing scheme.

Module 3 takes place around 6 - 8 weeks after the delegates have started their new role and the date is agreed between the Link Worker and DNA Insight. Module 3 is an Active Learning, Reflective Practice and Networking session. In a facilitated learning environment, delegates are invited to present anonymised but real life situations and case studies they have encountered since being trained and which have presented a challenge in their new role. The assembled delegates discuss the challenge and, through a structured and facilitated process, provide feedback and suggestions to help the delegate with the challenge. It is an immensely powerful process and is designed to help delegates with their own challenges, as well as to provide a professional networking forum that will provide regular opportunities for the delegates to meet and discuss current topics and issues.

As with all of our courses, delegates receive access to 12 months of 24/7 telephone support following the training, together with access to all the materials used and ongoing collaboration and networking tools, allowing them to keep up to date with the latest Social Prescribing developments and to build lasting personal and professional relationships, and networks with colleagues.
