the journey to work readiness

How can we better prepare new practitioners to be work-ready and how do we support everyone involved in the process?
Experiential placements and assessments will be the focus of Colloquium 2020 where delegates will explore “From Virtual to Reality: The journey to work-readiness”.
After careful consideration, we have made the decision to POSTPONE the Colloquium until early 2021 due to the escalation of COVID-19 nationally and internationally.
We believe it would be socially irresponsible for us to proceed with the Colloquium in May for the following reasons:
we are socially responsible health education organisations, and we should do all we can to assist containment of the virus
we should not encourage people to congregate
we should not impede clinical staff from being available for front-line duties, including clinical work, staffing hotlines and on-call duty (and they may be seconded to additional clinical roles)
universities are under stress with student and staff absences and are experiencing educational and financial impact
We apologise for the inconvenience and we will keep you updated.
