Events for Medical & Healthcare Professionals in 2014

In 2012, we  launched a series of Local Study Days for Medical and Healthcare Professionals under the auspices of our Medical & Healthcare Professionals Forum.
These days have been of real benefit to many working in paediatrics, occupational therapy, speech & language therapy, nursing, teaching and other, related social  and family support roles, including  childcare and home visiting. Midwives, GPs and those working in the fields of psychiatry and psychology have  also gained value from these workshops.  These days are credited with CPD points by the Royal College of Peadiatrics and Child Health.

Several Local Study Day events were held in  2013, with the last in that year taking place on  22nd November at the Charles Hastings Centre, Worcester. This exciting, practical one-day event looked at the nature of disorders covered by the term "FASD"; how those disorders  impacted upon not only  the affected individual but the family,  carers and professionals around them; and the reality of the implications for education, healthcare and social work practice.  The speakers were  Dr Mary Mather and Julia Brown. 
The programme of events for the Forum continued throughout 2014. We held  a one-day conference in Leeds with Dr Raja Mukherjee on Thursday, 20th March at Headingley Stadium, Leeds.  
Then we held a joint symposium with colleagues involved in the FASD Trust Education Professional Forum. It took place on  30th June, at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton and proved to be very well atttended and received.  Here is  an agenda for the event which lists the speakers who took part,  and the range of topics covered.

Also in Brighton, there was a one day meeting  in October 2014 focusing on "Conception to 6 years", to be hosted by Dr Neil Aiton.
