University to host Huntington's Disease Association study day
The Huntington's Disease Association will hold a study day for Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists at Swansea University's School of Health Science on Monday, June 23.
Entitled 'Working together to share ideas and promote good practice', the event’s keynote speakers include Dr Monica Busse of Cardiff University, Dr Helen Dawes of Oxford Brookes University, Physiotherapist Brendon Stubbs and Occupational Therapist Kirsty Page, both from St Andrews Healthcare.
Topics covered will include a general introduction to Huntington’s disease, working with patients with Huntington’s from a physiotherapist and occupational therapist perspective, and current research and developments in the field.
The study day, which will run from 10.30am until 3.30pm, costs £30 and includes refreshments and a buffet lunch.
Gareth Noble, lecturer in the School of Health Science and Chronic Condition Management programme leader, said: "I'm delighted that the Huntington's Disease Association has chosen to host this event at the School of Health Science.
"It shows that the School is pro-active in its efforts to stay at the forefront of the Chronic Condition Management field, and the study day discussions will help spread new ideas and health care research to those caring for people with Huntington's disease to ensure they provide the best possible treatment and care. It is also an ideal opportunity for networking."
