Northern ACPIN are pleased to welcome some new members to the committee; Kathy Jackson, Deborah Harrison and Beth van Loo. Kathy Jackson has taken over as the Chair and Lesley Charman is now the Treasurer. We would like to thank Laura Colley for her work as Treasurer for the last few years, and are pleased that she will continue to be part of the committee.
We have been busy planning our autumn programme. Hopefully our members enjoyed the evening seminar: ‘Hydrotherapy in neurological rehabilitation’. This was planned to be our first event to use Webex, to enable our members who live more remotely and have difficulty attending our events to access the content of this seminar. In December, we were also excited to present a joint evening seminar on the management of spasticity and hypertonia with the Colllege of Occupational Therapists’ Specialist Section – Neurological Practice. There are several great events in the pipeline for 2017, details of which will be sent out to our members once they are confirmed.
We are continuing to seek the views of our members, in order to improve the service that we provide. If you are interested in joining the committee and steering your local ACPIN or have any feedback on how we can improve, please come and talk to us at one of our events, or email us at the link below.
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
