East Midlands Vascular Clinical Advisory Group - Education Event: Exercise Training Programmes for Intermittent Claudication
I would like to invite you to an Education Day which has been organised in response to discussions at the last Vascular Clinical Advisory Group Meeting held in December 2016.
This Education event is focussed on exercise training programmes for patients with Intermittent Claudication. This is not something that is being offered in all vascular units in the East Midlands. This education day gives us an opportunity to review the evidence base for such a programme and look at challenges facing those centres that have tried to set up such a service.
In addition to hearing from colleagues in Northamptonshire, we have invited the team from Oldham to present their experience as they have established a successful exercise training programme.
I am hoping that after the presentations on this topic we can develop a strategy on that day for introducing this service in all units in the East Midlands.
I would encourage you and your colleagues to attend this event and please pass this invite on to anyone in your hospital that you feel should also attend.
