We can always learn from each other.

“It’s about the practical stuff that works best for people affected by MND”

Networking events for professionals throughout the year.

Your network

Discussion is important, it can provide reassurance, help to solve a problem or spark an idea. These events bring the members of the Community together, a bit of time away from clinic to genuinely network and share ideas with your nationwide team. In the future these will be face to face events held in the regions – for this year they will be virtual and we will make them as interactive as possible.

Your platform

As well as networking, these events are an opportunity to share your experience with your Community of Practice colleagues from a platform – by giving a 10 minute presentation supported by a poster. The content you share could be a case study, an audit, or an action you took to improve your service. It could also definitely be something that didn’t work – we learn from mistakes and the community is a safe space.

If you want to share in this way, please take a look at the submission form. Making a presentation could count towards your professional CPD requirement. The Expert Core will review the proposals and speakers will be confirmed for up and coming events – we will work with you to ensure your presentation and poster production run smoothly.
