Study Day welcomed by Physiotherapists

Last week we held our first study day by Physiotherapy Lecturer Paul Humphrey on 'An Introduction to COPD diagnosis and Management'.

The day was a very well received:

"excellent, really interesting and worthwhile"

"very informative, will take it all on board."

"I feel much more confident in how to assess and treat COPD patients - thank you!"

If you are interested in Respiratory Care for Physiotherapists why not have a look at our forthcoming masters level module.

Showcasing our health expertise

On Monday 12 September the Faculty held its first 'Health Showcase' event.  The aim of the afternoon was to celebrate some of our longstanding partnerships with health and social care colleagues in the region and discuss future CPD provision.

As well as an opportunity to meet a wide range of academic experts over lunch, the presentations which followed included our MSc in health & social care, Outcome Measures, Research and Bespoke CPD. 

We were also delighted that Sharon Oliver, from Yorkshire & the Humber Strategic Health Authority, gave a very informative keynote presentation.
