Dr Roddam to lead HEE workshops

CAHPR Cumbria and Lancashire Hub Leader Dr Hazel Roddam will lead a series of workshops on behalf of Health Education England (HEE) about the Integrated Clinical Academic (ICA) Programme.

In addition to providing information about the scheme, Dr Roddam will be collecting feedback, experiences and opinions about the scheme, to assist HEE to consider any other factors that could better support this agenda.

Dr Roddam said: "Many of the case studies we're currently preparing will feature AHPs, which is excellent news.

"We'd like to hear suggestions from people who'd like to share their own experiences, or feed in their comments to us, especially any clinical managers who would be prepared to discuss this scheme.

"Please feel free to share the flyer above or this one with your colleagues - places are free and all the specified non-medical professions are welcome – AHPs, nurses, midwives, health visitors and healthcare scientists."
