Professor Peter Sturmey Speaks at Rehab Group on Importance for More Information on Treatment

13th and 14th June 2016: Professor Peter Sturmey, a specialist on evidence-based practice, will tell a Rehab Group series of workshops in Dublin this week that there is not enough information on treatment available, resulting in a large variation in the quality of care and services.

Investing in innovative projects and being at the forefront of evidence-based practice is one of the aims in the Rehab Group strategic plan. Workshops like these will enable people to be leaders in their fields and to improve the practices in services by using evidence-based methods. RehabCare and National Learning Network, two divisions of the Rehab Group, aim to invest in innovative projects that help the people who use our services to achieve their goals in life.

The workshops are focusing on fostering innovation, evidence-based practice, and enabling people to be leaders in their fields. The workshops are an expression of Rehab Group’s commitment to ensuring that our services are built on the best evidence and good practice.

Professor Peter Sturmey is Professor of Psychology at the Graduate Centre and the Department of Psychology in Queens College, City University of New York and has specialised in the fields of autism, developmental disabilities, and also in areas of applied behaviour analysis, dual diagnosis, evidence-based practice, and staff and parent training.

The workshops over the two days will focus on a variety of topics including, what evidence-based practice is and why you should use it; supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to maximise their independence and quality of life; reviewing methods of evidence-based methods to treat adults with mental health issues and dual diagnoses and also looking at evidence-based practice in staff training and performance management.
