Call for work from local trusts for ASPiH Conference

ASPiH (Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare) are currently calling for any practitioners or students from local trusts/HEIs to submit work to be showcased during the early parts of their 6th annual national conference taking place in the Brighton Centre from 3rd – 5th November 2015.

ASPiH’s intention is to showcase local work during the beginning of the conference by way of a number of possible layouts, E.g. a short presentation followed by a discussion, or an interactive workshop. Local work is being selected to exhibit work done locally to national bodies to help forge further professional relationships.

If you are from a local trust/HEI and have suitable work that you feel other practitioners would benefit from, please contact Dr Wesley Scott-Smith to discuss your work’s suitability for showcasing further.
