CELEBRATING ALLIED HEALTH RESEARCH IN SA HEALTH
In our busy lives, we don’t often stop and appreciate the work we do and recognise the difference it brings to people’s lives every day.
This is what AHPs Day is all about, and we invite you to celebrate the work that you do on the 14 October and share that celebration on Twitter to join in the worldwide #AHPsDay movement.
GATHER YOUR CREW AND CELEBRATE
Here are a few celebratory ideas for you to think about, but feel free to let your imagination run wild and organise something that is meaningful to you.
- Morning or Afternoon Tea
- Create your own appreciation/gratitude awards
- Invite non-AHP and Executive staff to “shadow an AHP for an hour”
- Coordinate your own flash mob
- Run a quiz
- Have a bake-off
The Allied and Scientific Health Office (ASHO) can help you with ideas and they have produced great resources including a resource pack and poster to help plan your celebration.
The valuable research being undertaken by allied health clinicians across South Australia supports excellence in clinical care, evidence-informed practice and enables improved health outcomes for individuals and the South Australian population as a whole.
STATEWIDE TELEREHABILITATION SERVICES – from research pilot to statewide service
Telerehabilitation in South Australia began in 2013 as a grant funded research project, supported by SA Health, Flinders University and NBN Co. The pilot project investigated the use of technologies to support rehabilitation, aged and palliative care clients, specifically the use of videoconferencing to enable access to clinical services from within the client’s home.
Over the last 6 years, the outcomes of that initial research project have been implemented into clinical practice and expanded to form a statewide program.
Statewide Telerehabilitation Services now provides more than 5000 video calls per year, supporting the health and wellbeing of more than 1500 consumers across both regional and metropolitan locations.
