2016 has been a very exciting year for Kent. Our committee has grown in numbers and we have welcomed several new members, bringing fresh ideas to the committee. We have hosted a PNF course last November, a vestibular rehabilitation course in January and several exciting evening lectures including ‘managing anxiety’ and ‘advances in neuro-imaging’.
Most significantly this year, Kent ACPIN embarked on the adventure and challenge of organising our first ever stroke conference. A sub-committee of five members met regularly to plan and organise this exciting event. Held at Eastwell Manor, a luxury spa hotel in Kent, the conference attracted many delegates and was a thought-provoking and inspiring study day. I would like to personally thank the sub-committee for all the sleepless nights and hard work that were put into organising such a brilliant event. Although Kent is not one of the biggest memberships in ACPIN, our region continues to be enthusiastic and motivated to providing CPD events for local neurophysiotherapists. I hope that next year we will be welcoming more members at our events. Please feel free to chat to any of the ACPIN committee at any of our events to join the committee.
Our events schedule for next year has not been confirmed yet. Please let us know if there are any specific events that you would like Kent to cover. We strive to keep our events up to date and relevant to our members.
