Improve your skills as an educator at the BSUH Inter-professional Research, Education and Knowledge Conference 2017

Directorate Education Knowledge Logo

Do you teach or supervise medical trainees, nursing students, or staff in any profession at BSUH?  Every year the Trust runs a one-day conference aimed at educators – this year it’s coming up on the 15th September in the Audrey Emerton Building.  These events always receive excellent feedback thanks to the wide range of topics covered, which are useful for staff of all disciplines, so why not come along?

The Inter-professional Research, Education and Knowledge Conference 2017 (IREKCon) will include plenary sessions from experts on engaging the multi-generational workforce, co-designing services with patients, and changing behaviours of staff.  There will be break-out groups discussing everything from safety huddles to human factors education, trainee feedback and innovative approaches to case-based discussions.

We’ll also have demonstrations of the simulated ambulance (“simbulance”) and practical workshops on using technology in teaching, improving productivity and networking with Twitter.

Health Information Week

HiW

Health Information Week (3-9 July) is a national multi-sector campaign to promote the good quality health resources that are available to the public.

This year, our Public Health and Patient Information Specialist Librarians will be manning a stall in the foyer of the Jubilee Public Library in Brighton on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th July.

The theme will be on cancer screening and knowing the signs of cancer. We will be raising awareness through our leaflets and posters of the benefits of screening to prevent cancer, and also the importance of knowing the signs of cancer which means a visit to the doctor is needed. Drop in and see us there or contact us.

Follow the week’s events and join the campaign via Twitter: #HIW2017
