Westminster Health Forum

Realising the potential of Allied Health Professionals

Thursday, 23rd March 2017

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will provide an opportunity to assess the future role of Allied Health Professionals (AHPs), including their potential to collaborate as part of multidisciplinary teams and reduce pressures on health services.

Following the amendment of medicines legislation to give independent prescribing powers to therapeutic radiographers, physiotherapists, dietitians and orthoptists, delegates will consider next steps for extending non-medical prescribing to other professions, as well as how AHPs can be further empowered to support new models of care and assist in responding to the needs of patients.

Sessions will also focus on training the future workforce, developing leadership skills and progress on implementing the Allied Health Professions Federation and Public Health England’s joint AHP strategy.
