This workshop will take students on a journey to discover the Allied Health Professions (AHPs) working in high-pressure environments delivering emergency response and aftercare.

We’ll follow a patient case study, identifying touch points where the patient will receive treatment from specialist AHPs and support workers, for example, those who:

  • attend the scene of an emergency and deliver patients to A&E;
  • take x-rays to identify and diagnose injury;
  • manage the operating theatre environment;
  • support recovery and aftercare.

Students will learn about these exciting Allied Health careers and qualification pathways, and hear first hand from a range of AHPs delivery care in emergencies, to tell us:

  • How they got into their job.
  • What a ‘day in the life’ is like.
  • Challenges and highlights of their role.
  • Things they wish they knew when they were younger!

Ahead of joining the session, educators will be able to access a resource sheet in the Google Classroom to undertake preliminary or post-workshop activity, enabling students to explore more about the various roles and come up with any questions they might like to pose to our speakers.
