For all of you who follow me I have just had a memorable workshop with occupational therapists, specialist nurses and rheumatoid physiotherapists in Glasgow. What a lovely bunch of ladies. Their candid contributions and honesty blew me away. My colleague Sarah Collins and I were talking about relationships and sexuality and the emotional impact of chronic illness on patients. This was a sponsored event which is free for any healthcare practitioner who works with chronic illness. Run by NRAS the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society this is a workshop not to be missed. I don’t say that because I play a part, but because it is such a reflective day and really challenges your interaction with patients from an emotional perspective. We are in Poole Dorset on 11th October so come, be represented and above all make a difference. Contact me directly for more information : email@example.com.
