Are you studying or taking an interest in clinical engineering? Keele University will be hosting a one-day seminar on The Future of Clinical Engineering on Tuesday 5th June. The event will explore this topic from a number of perspectives, including:
- How clinical engineering can realise the potential of advancements in healthcare technology.
- How other clinical colleagues perceive the role of, and need for, clinical engineering.
- How we can ensure that the clinical engineers that will be essential to the future of healthcare be trained and developed.
Speakers at the event will include Dr Richard Scott, the School’s Professional Lead and Head of Clinical Engineering at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, as well as Dr Adam Shortland from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital and Andrew Roberts from the ORLAU at The Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital.
The organisers are seeking papers for consideration which could include research projects, case studies and opinion pieces. Submissions should comprise a title and short abstract, no longer than one side of A4, and be sent to Caroline Stewart.
Tickets include refreshments and lunch and are available to STP trainees at a reduced rate of £30 and to everyone else for £50; tickets must be booked by 29th May. To book a place or for more information, visit Keele University’s website.
