Welcome to From Clinic to classroom and back again

We are very pleased to have been successful in our Learning Enhancement and Innovation Bid 2019-20 for our Occupational Therapy project at the University of Northampton “From Clinic to Classroom and back again”.  Look at the pages on the blog to learn more about our project.

Some of the work behind our bid included finding the clinic room/s. Liaising with Podiatry was pivotal to this, and we now have a room offered to us within the UoN Podiatry clinic to use for initial interviews. One of our plans is to make this ‘user friendly’ and ‘cosy’. 

Another important aspect is the ethical issues of our project. We are, as I write,  preparing an application for ethical approval to use the data collected from our service users for teaching and learning. 

If you have any questions or suggestions please comment on this post

Keep posted for updates on our progress!
