Jenny Plummer - Consultant Physiotherapist in Nepal
You may have seen an advert for the post of Consultant Physiotherapist in Nepal that was posted in the newsletter earlier this year. The post was posted on WCPT, and was being sponsored by The Association for Support of Physiotherapy In Nepal (ASPN) who have been involved with Physiotherapy in Nepal for more than 10 years. I successfully applied for the post, and took a career break from the NHS, and have been here since October 2nd. For the first month I travelled around Nepal exploring and acclimatising to the very different living situation and way of life. This meant that by the time I commenced work for Kathmandu University Medical School (KUSMS) at Dhulikhel Hospital (about 1hr 30min outside Kathmandu) at the end of October I was used to living with the hours without electricity, the local transport systems and was enjoying the food. I was fairly settled into life here. My role has been to support the cardio-respiratory lecturers on the only BSc Physiotherapy course in the country, and develop the physiotherapy respiratory services within the hospital.

This was the second study day to be run this year by the Acute Paediatric Respiratory Care Group. Manchester Children's Hospital hosted the day. We aim to vary the location of the days in the hope that it will mean it can be easily accessed by people all around the country.

National Physiotherapy Simulation Workshop Report
Friday 5th October, 2012
Barts Health Medical Simulation Centre, Prescott Street, London, E1 8PR.
High fidelity simulation based guided learning is well utilised within medical and nursing undergraduate and postgraduate training but is infrequently utilised within Physiotherapy education. Support from the ACPRC allowed the Barts Health Medical Simulation Centre to provide access to the centre and its resources for a small group (n = 7) of experienced Physiotherapists (mean time since graduation 8yrs., range 3 - 12yrs) with a background in Acute Care Physiotherapy.
