Do you want to become a peer reviewer?
As a peer reviewer you will visit other learning disability services. This provides an excellent opportunity to learn from other services, share good practice, contribute to the peer review process and network with colleagues.
More information about the benefits of being a peer reviewer can be found on this poster.
Training is open to all staff working in QNLD member services.
