Headway consulted on updated WCA training module

Fri 23 Aug 2019

Headway has worked with the Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA) to help improve its acquired brain injury training module.

The module was produced as part of a training programme for Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) who conduct Work Capability Assessments for the CHDA on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions.

As part of our Right First Time campaign, Headway helped to inform certain aspects of the module including the severity of brain injury, its effects and useful information around rehabilitation.

Peter McCabe, Chief Executive of Headway, said: “By working directly with the likes of the CHDA, while continuing to call for the government to fundamentally change the way disability benefits are assessed, we can make a difference to the way claimants’ applications are handled.”
