On Friday 14 August, CIAP joined many other programs from HealthShare NSW and eHealth NSW exhibiting at the HealthShare NSW & eHealth NSW Expo.
The CIAP stand enjoyed a busy day, with visitors from across the Local Health Districts, Ministry of Health and NSW Ambulance stopping by to ask questions and pick up some information. Newly updated user guides were available in print along with the latest edition of the monthly CIAP newsletter, which focused on the wide range of rehabilitation resources available through CIAP. The Learning Centre was particularly popular, with many of the visitors to the stand interested in attending upcoming face to face workshops or utilising the eLearning modules, which focus on searching for evidence and evidence-based practice.
A highlight was the service awards presentation at the end of the day where the CIAP team was one of four finalists in the Creating Value category. “The team was honoured to be nominated amongst strong competition. Congratulations to the Food Service Improvement Program who took out the award,” said Manager, Marie Pryor.
