The Power Play in Healthcare: Who Really Holds the Scalpel?

The Power Play in Healthcare: Who Really Holds the Scalpel? - AHP Advanced Practice Collective Webinar
Join The Allied Health Academy’s AHP Advanced Practice Collective on 22 February 2024, 6:00AM-8:00AM GMT, for our seminar “The Power Play in Healthcare: Who Really Holds the Scalpel?”; a thought-provoking, challenging, call to action for the health professions, policymakers, employers, service users and funders to secure sustainable, efficient and equitable access to safe and effective health services.

Our expert panel of presenters, Professor Susan Nancarrow, Professor Alan Borthwick OBE and Dr Anne-Louise Carlton will lead an informative discussion exploring scope of practice at the legislative, professional and service levels, examining international and interdisciplinary variations in responses changing role boundaries.

The two-hour seminar will navigate the history and development of professional role boundaries in healthcare, reflect on and challenge assumptions about the nature of “health work” and the rightful owners of particular tasks and titles, and debate the pros and cons of regulating scopes of practice, and the other mechanisms which exist for safeguarding the community as scopes of practice inevitably change.

Further details and tickets are available at the event link.
