Raising Awareness of Encephalitis
The Society works on raising awareness through arranging conferences, workshops, and seminars for professionals, providing tailor-made training packages for health, education and social care professionals and establishing links to, and collaborations with, other organisations.
“I thought I'd send you an email to say thank you so much for coming to our CPD session on Tuesday. It was incredibly interesting and useful and your knowledge, experience and passion for the work you do with the Encephalitis Society really shone through!”
Occupational Therapist, Sheffield Community Brain Injury Rehabilitation Team
How is this done?
Staff members of the Society regularly attend clinical meetings and conferences to present information, make contact with professionals working in the medical fields relevant to Encephalitis and man display stands with our literature.
We also provide bespoke training for health, education and social care professionals. For more information on this click the Training for Professionals Link to the left of this page.
People who are affected by Encephalitis themselves can also raise awareness by taking information to their doctor or therapist. Information materials and posters can either be downloaded from this website or requested from the Society.
The Society from time to time sends information to Hospital and Community departments. People affected by Encephalitis themselves can help by taking posters and leaflets to their local hospital or Health Centre and checking that the posters are displayed and leaflets have not run out.
The Wider Public.
Media coverage in newspaper, magazines, radio and television programmes is the best tool for reaching the wider public. Personal stories are so powerful in explaining what it means to be affected by Encephalitis. Contact us if you are interested in joining our list of members willing to work with the Society and the Media, when opportunities arise.
