CIT CEN IT Success Toolkit, plus talk from Dr Swathi Kiran-Constant Therapy
Success Stories with IT: Converting our shared knowledge into a usable toolkit. Plus a talk from the co-founder of Constant Therapy, Dr Swathi Kiran.
Join us for our next computers in therapy clinical excellence network (CIT CEN) meeting in Weston-super-Mare. We'll be hearing from Dr Swathi Kiran, co-founder of 'Constant Therapy' via conference call to Boston, and using our collective experience and expertise to refine a toolkit for overcoming barriers to using computers in therapy. We'll also be discussing a case study from one of our members and reviewing the CQ Live apps page - as well as catching up on all the latest member recommendations for apps and resource pages. By the end of the day you should have a refreshed toolkit to address your IT issues, up-to-date understanding of the suite of Constant Therapy tools and the research behind them and an updated perspective on currently available apps and sources of information for all of your computers in therapy needs.
We look forward to seeing you there!
