In this section you will find materials (Power Point Slides and handouts, information sheets and tips) developed by Dr Penny Rapaport, to train different categories of staff to deliver START locally.
Clinical psychologists and Admiral Nurses
This PowerPoint presentation is from the three hour “Train-the Trainers” workshop led by Penny in 2014, within the framework of the START Dissemination project funded by the Alzheimer’s Society (2014-2015). This was for trained Clinical Psychologists to train and supervise other members of staff to deliver the START intervention locally.
