Equipment advice for Devon professionals

The Independent Living Centre equipment specialist service is also for carers and any Devon staff who need equipment training, advice and information.

Equipment training

We run a diverse programme of equipment training for Devon staff.

New equipment prescribers in Devon can book a place on  ‘Equipment Awareness’ training to get your Millbrook PIN and learn more about Care Act Eligibility and the equipment process. For hands on equipment training book onto ‘Assessment and Fitting of DILIS Equipment’  These sessions are also a good refresher for experienced prescribers. See Millflow for the up to date brochure and booking information .

Pressure Ulcer Prevention training is high priority for all Devon teams and our county wide training courses help you to identify risk and take action to reduce the risk of pressure ulcers with practical interventions. See Millflow for the up to date brochure and booking information

Advanced Equipment training sessions are a great way for experienced Devon teams to develop their assessment and problem solving skills for complex needs. You will get to know the latest innovative equipment solutions and find out how these can be used in Devon. See Millflow for the up to date brochure and booking information
