The programme teaches nurses an advanced level of theory which is behind the basic practices introduced in the original course, giving the practitioners a greater understanding of the science behind the methodology. The course also measures the participant’s level of ability in implementing the practical elements of the activity therapy such as massage and correct use of oils and sprays. A theory test is also presented at the end of the programme. On successful completion of the programme nurses will be approved to facilitate workshops in any residential care & day care setting for older people and will automatically credit their place of work as an approved ImaginationGYM place of practice for the duration of the nurses involvement.
