As someone working within the health and social care sector, it is very important to gain at least a basic understanding of some of the conditions and illnesses you are likely to encounter. One such condition is schizophrenia, a mental disorder that is often misunderstood or wrongly classified as something else.
To improve your working knowledge on the subject of schizophrenia, it is recommended that you take a short schizophrenia awareness training course. Specially designed for people who either work within the health care sector or those who aspire to start a career in health and social care, this kind of care training course will outline and explain the main issues you need to know.
On a schizophrenia awareness training course, you can expect to learn about:
â€¢ What schizophrenia actually is, and what itâ€™s not to be confused with
â€¢ The causes of schizophrenia
â€¢ The signs and symptoms of schizophrenia to look out for
â€¢ Treatments that are currently available for people with schizophrenia
â€¢ The different types of schizophrenia you may encounter
â€¢ The risks associated with the condition
This course should generally only take around two hours to complete, but it will significantly boost your knowledge of a complex condition that affects many lives throughout the UK.
