Forthcoming events

Advancing Research Careers for Under-recognised AHPs across the South West – Session lead by Katie Williams. Wednesday 23rd May, 12:00-13:00pm

A recent project aimed to explore who AHPs and AHP support workers, in the South West, felt were under-recognised and what the barriers and enablers were for those groups in research career progression. In phase one, 190 AHPs expressed an interest in the project and 66 AHPs and AHP support workers participated. Key themes were generated of what under-recognised meant, who was under-recognised and what the barriers and enablers were to those groups.

This is a fantastic opportunity to hear about the findings of phase one, the plans for phase two and how attendees could potentially contribute to the work. Register via our website.
