AHP Conference 2022 - 13 Days of AHPs: Extraordinary Times, Extraordinary Practice

From 23 February to 11 March we held the AHP Conference 2022. Due to the pressures on health and social care services our conference was structured a little differently. We held thirteen one-hour sessions across thirteen days to enabled as many people as possible to pick and mix the sessions they attended.

Under the resources section in the table below, you’ll find conference resources, along with a recording of each session. Use the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the table to navigate.

We'd also like to thank Eluned Morgan, Health Minister for Wales, for opening the conference. If you missed this introduction, you can watch it here or view a transcript, here.
