HPC at European Academic Conference in Ljubljana

18 May 2023

The Healthy Parent Carer Team are off to Ljubljana, Slovenia next week to present at the European Academy for Childhood Disability Conference.

We are chairing a symposium titled: Promoting health, empowerment, and resilience in parents of disabled children: an exploration of novel parent carer-focused interventions.

The symposium will feature Healthy Parent Carers as well as two other programmes from Australia and Canada, namely Healthy Mothers, Healthy Families and ENVISAGE: ENabling VISions and Growing Expectations. We will explain how the programmes have been co-created with parent carers and that they are more complementary than competing, as each has different aims, target group and content. We hope to have a great discussion with participants about the need for parent carer-focused programmes, programme content and delivery strategies and ways to evaluate programmes.

The EACD Symposium handout summarises key features of the programmes, links to websites and reference articles.
