We are delighted to report that we are still members of the UKs second largest ACPIN region, second only to London, and that is down to our members, for your support and thirst for your professional development.
2017 was another successful year with a vibrant programme of events. This started with a fantastic course on the shoulder hosted at Leeds Beckett University and facilitated by Jo Gibson, her expertise provided lots of practically stimulating and useful ideas which reiterated the importance of activation of the rotator cuff. The year progressed with various courses and stimulating evening lectures including:
• Primitive Reflex Inhibition RI,Pam Bagott
• AGM and Study Day – Huntington’s Chorea Update, Different strokes, Leeds
• Head, Neck and Thorax, Helen Lindfield
• Sharing Best Practice evening _ Case Studies Hydrotherapy DMD and Use of GaitLite
• Vestibular Rehabilitation, Sally Winterburn and Laura Wilby
• Hydrotherapy, Jackie Packman
• Wheelchair Skills in people with Spinal Cord Injuries, Dene Minchella
In January 2018 we hosted our AGM and Mary Lynch Ellerington delivered an inspiring study day on Postural Control for the Recovery of Walking. This was a well attended event and provided a great start to the year.
Developments have included the introduction to a new new booking system or courses. We are trying to embrace the technology and notify our members about courses using Facebook, Email and occasionally in Frontline. We are hoping to develop an online survey to gather feedback, we recognise the importance of doing this in a timely manner.
Before finishing this update, it is important to say a very big thank you to all those on the Yorkshire committee. We have welcomed two new babies born to our committee members Katy Chance and Vicky Draper and look forward to seeing them at our meetings! We have a new member who has recently joined us Vicky Dodds and are very board to have Karen Hull as a both committee member and Board member for ACPIN.
The rest of our fantastic team are:, Linda Britton, Oby Ufodiama, Dawn Knibbs, Rowena Wright, Fiona McKeever, Sarah Watson, Sarah Bates, Chris Robbins and of course Linda’s dog Denby.
We would very much welcome new members onto the committee as always, it is often very refreshing to gain others people’s views, energy and of course new contacts and lectures.
The Yorkshire ACPIN Committee would like to offer evening and day courses at a variety of different venues. It is especially difficult to access venues suitable for practical sessions for week- day courses. Please let a committee member know if you can offer any suitable venues.
It has recently come to our attention that there have been delays in some people receiving information re: ACPIN courses. If ACPIN members are not receiving details of forthcoming events, please can they make the committee aware via email.
