There has been a considerable amount of webcast activity over the last few weeks.
We had the pleasure of Streaming the Scottish Centre for Telehealth & Telecare Learning Event which was held at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh on May 31st. The weather that day was glorious as you’ll see from the interviews that we conducted with the keynote speakers and workshop leaders.
As always at these events we took time to chat with the exhibitors who often help to make these events possible by their contribution.
Of course the highlight of the conference were the five minute “Snapshot” presentations on all topics related to Technology Enabled Care
Just before the SCTT event we were also at Queen Margaret University streaming a fascinating conference on Home Based Memory Rehabilitation. Home Based Memory Rehabilitation (HBMR) is a developing evidence based occupational therapy early intervention for people living with dementia. It aims to help people compensate for any memory difficulties affecting everyday functioning and engagement in occupations. The structured programme is person centred, encouraging new learned behaviours in the early stages of dementia, creating habits and routines which can then be relied upon over time as a self-management approach. This work is aligned to the AHP National Delivery Plan and Scotland’s National Dementia Strategy, supporting the commitment for improved post diagnostic support with the guarantee of 12 months post diagnostic support coordinated by a named Link Worker. The work that was shared at the conference won the Alzheimer Scotland Dementia award 2014 for Best Community Initiative.
As we mentioned before we are seeing an increasing demand for webcasting to deliver online CPD and briefings. NHS Education for Scotland are delivering a series of webcasts on the topic of Authentic Leadership. The last two in the series were streamed on our new multi format platform and have been very well received.
The Scottish Ambulance Service are continuing to use our webcasting service to deliver a series of 10 new CPD sessions for Paramedics after the huge success of the initial trial. Similarly, their Chief Executive , Pauline Howie continues her series of Quarterly Briefings to staff which always attract record numbers of viewers.
Please don’t forget to visit our new Health & Social Care Integration Channel for lots more video presentations and interviews.
