Research and Clinical Practice: A two way street - PRS Annual Conference at Northumbria University, 19th April 2018 (37th Scientific Meeting of the Physiotherapy Research Society)

Northumbria University are hosting the Physiotherapy Research Society (PRS) conference on 19th April 2018 at Coach Lane Campus. The PRS annual scientific meetings have been run annually (and occasionally biannually) for over 20 years. It is a UK based conference aimed at new and early career researchers to present their findings due to its friendly and constructive ethos. The aim is to bring together top researchers in the field and early career researchers in order to inform and inspire the latter. The conference theme is ‘Research and Clinical Practice – A Two Way Street’, this aims to capture the importance of strong links between research and clinical practice, with each informing the other. A flyer with further details can be downloaded here.

The Macmillan Award for Leadership and Innovation in cancer rehabilitation

The Macmillan Award for Leadership and Innovation in cancer rehabilitation aims to recognise the importance of cancer rehabilitation at all stages of a patient's journey from diagnosis through to end of life care.

Rehabilitation is aimed at maximising and optimising the patients physical, psychological and economic functioning while ensuring their dignity. AHPs play a major part in making this happen.
We want to hear from AHPs who can demonstrate:

• Leadership evidenced through a multi-professional approach to delivering rehabilitation for cancer patients
• Creative use of skill-mix to support patients
• Evidence of innovative approach
• Demonstration of impact and outcomes
You can nominate yourself, your team or a colleague for this award.
So take inspiration from these stories and enter for this prestigious award or nominate a colleague.

The closing date is 17.00 on Friday 19 January 2018.
Details of all 14 categories can be found by visiting our website or download the brochure here.
Judging will take place on Monday 26 February at the RCOT in London and the date of the awards lunch is Friday 20 April 2018 at the Hilton London Tower Bridge Hotel.
We look forward to receiving your entry. Good luck!
