Deaf Action receives FaME Award

Deaf Action were delighted to be nominated this year for a FaME (Faculty of Medical Educators) Award for our four-week Deaf Awareness & BSL course we run with medical students from the University of Dundee.
FaME awards were established to acknowledge, reward and encourage excellence in the teaching of undergraduate medical students. They are organised by the student-led FaME Committee, who give students the opportunity to recognise and vote for who they wish to present an award with.
Yesterday our Deaf Action team attended the awards ceremony at Ninewells Hospital and were delighted to be awarded 3rd place in the best self-selected category. Training manager Shaurna Dickson stated: ‘I would like to thank the members of staff and tutors that have successfully run this course over the last eight years…. This award is a fantastic recognition of all the work that goes into running this highly rewarding course with the University of Dundee’.
The course specially designed for medical students, covers *deaf awareness, Introductory to British Sign Language (BSL), lipreading, hearing aids, specialist equipment, working with an Interpreter, language acquisition in children, BSL experiences in the NHS, role play workshop’s and deafness and mental health.
