Annual regional clinical forum

The highlight of the consortium year is our clinical forum, where we bring clinicians from all member agencies together to lean from each other and discuss topical issues. The 2018 Forum was facilitated by Beth Wilson and dealt with ethical dilemmas in clinical practice. It had the highest attendance and the greatest satisfaction rate so far.

The next Clinical forum is scheduled for 21 March 2019.
