Pilot Workshop – Working with Deaf and Hard of Hearing Persons
Date: Monday May 14th 2018
Time: 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Location: Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Vancouver
Cochlear implants are not a cure for deafness. Interested to find out more? Come to the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing on May 14th to learn about the deaf and hard of hearing!
This new interprofessional workshop will introduce students to the lived experience of being a deaf or hard of hearing person. Students will have an opportunity to experience a simulation of what it is like to have difficulty hearing, learn and ask questions about deaf and hard of hearing culture, see different technologies available, and build a toolbox of communication strategies to provide better care in the future.
This workshop is worth 30 exposure level points on the Interprofessional Education Passport.
These workshops are only open to students in the UBC health and human services. Registration is required to attend as space is limited to 20 students.
Please be aware that completion of the form does not guarantee a space in the workshop – a confirmation of registration or wait list status will be sent within 72 hours.
