Allied Health Professionals Day
Allied Health Professionals Day on Thursday 14th October was celebrated at Albany Regional Hospital with a morning tea. Hosted by the GSHPN, we acknowledge and say a huge warm thank you to all the allied health workers we have here in the Great Southern.
The hospital has a variety of allied health professionals from OT, physio, dietitian, social workers, allied health assistants and speech pathologists who do an amazing job supporting the health and wellbeing of the local community.
Lishman Foundation Fellowship Awards
Last night we heard from Regional Consultant Paediatrician Dr Angela Alessandri who shared her knowledge and insight with an educational presentation The approach to the crying and fussy baby to a captivated audience at the Albany Surf life Saving Club. The links referenced in the presentation include:
- Royal Children’s Hospital Clinical Practice Guidelines
- Purple Crying
- Raising Children’s Network
- Pregnancy, Birth & Baby
This was then followed by the announcement of the 2021 Lishman Fellowship Awards. These awards recognise research initiatives by local health professionals.
