“I was lucky enough to be awarded one of the undergraduate scholarships to this years Tissue Viability Conference, which was held at the stunning York university campus” said Robyn.
“The conference was a brilliant learning experience for me as a third year undergraduate student with the many interesting speakers and interesting workshops. I particularly enjoyed being introduced to new research being undertaken within the area of tissue viability as it helped me with writing my dissertation and I feel will support my clinical practice. The soft casting workshop was a highlight of mine as it is something I had not previously heard of and was interactive which assisted in my learning”.
Robyn continued by saying, “the Italian themed dinner was a great way of meeting other professionals in a relaxed setting. The food was very nice and my special dietary needs were catered for well. The exhibition increased my knowledge and I found all the company representatives very helpful in teaching me about their products”.
“I would like to thank The Tissue Viability Society for this incredible opportunity and would recommend this conference to anyone with an interest in tissue viability. I hope to attend the conference again when qualified”.
