Introduction to the Allied Health Professions – Occupational Therapy and Mature Students Special
An Occupational Therapist helps people continue their work, studies, leisure activities and everyday tasks during illnesses, injuries, disabilities or ageing. They can help people learn to use assistive technology, help adapt their home or workplace to meet their needs, and work with people to find new ways to approach tasks. This session will provide an overview of the AHPs, an in-depth look into the role of a Occupational Therapist and information on what it is like to study an AHP course as a mature student. You will hear information from a member of the I See The Difference team and from an active Occupational Therapist who studied Occupational Therapy as a mature student at university.
Introduction to the Allied Health Professions – Paramedic Special
A paramedic responds to a range of emergency and non-emergency situations, travelling in an ambulance or car, or by bike or motorbike. Whatever the situation, paramedics are usually the first health professionals on the scene. They assess patients and make potentially life-saving decisions about whether and how to treat people at the scene, or transfer them to hospital.
Introduction to the Allied Health Professions – Podiatry Special
This session will provide an overview of the AHPs and an in-depth look into the role of a Podiatrist. Podiatrists are specialists in conditions of the lower limbs. They play a key role in reducing pain and helping people maintain their mobility and independence. In this webinar, we will be joined by a real life Podiatrist who will be reflecting on their role and how they got to where they are today.
