Be there or be virtual - are you ready for #CAHPO16?

Wednesday 15th June 2016 by @WeAHPs

@WeAHPs are busy preparing for next week which will see fellow tweeters meet on the evening of Wednesday 22 June, in readiness for the Chief Allied Health Professions Officers Conference the following day, Thursday 23 June.

The Chief Allied Health Professions Conference builds on the 2015 theme of ‘AHPs as Innovators and Entrepreneurs’ to move to ‘AHP Innovation Delivering #FutureNHS’.  We’ll be focusing on the solutions AHPs can offer the challenges faced by New Care Models and outlined in the Five Year Forward View.

Bringing the conference to you: tweeting and livestreaming

It is a great pleasure this year that WeAHPs have been asked to live stream key talks from the conference, alongside live tweeting key messages with other attendees. This will keep you informed of key messages and let those of you who are unable access the conference physically to access it virtually.

We will be using Periscope which is a free App that anyone can use to film and livestream from phones or tablets, with filmed sessions available for viewing at a time convenient to you afterwards.

So how can you get involved virtually?

There are 2 ways you can watch livestreamed sessions:

Directly from twitter:

  1. Make sure you are following @WeAHPs.
  2. Look for tweets from @WeAHPs using #CAHPO16 that include a video – we will clearly title each one with the speaker’s name.
  3. Click on the play symbol on the centre of the video to watch directly from twitter (it can take a few seconds to load).
  4. In the top right you also have the option to open and watch the video in Periscope – hover over and then click on the white and red teardrop shaped symbol.

Watching in Periscope

Watching the video directly from Periscope means that you can comment directly on the video while you are watching it.  It can slso be easier to find videos if you are not watching them live.

  1. Download the Periscope app here (its free) or from your App store.
  2. Search for & follow WeAHPs.
  3. If you are watching live open the Periscope App just before the time of the presentation you wish to view (see below).
  4. Click on the TV icon at the bottom left of the screen. Live broadcasts will appear at the top and recent broadcasts underneath.
  5. Then click on the broadcast you want to watch and click on the play symbol.

We will do a practice broadcast at the tweet meet on the evening of Wednesday 22 June so look out for that!

What can I watch from #CAHPO16 and at what time?

Don’t forget you can also follow the conference by the slightly more traditional method of Twitter and searching the conference hashtag #CAHPO16. If you aren’t able to come to the event we hope you can join us online during the day and add your comments on twitter. 

Please note that this is a free and easy way to live stream. The quality of the broadcast is sometimes not perfect but by using this resource it will mean that you can watch the main programme sessions live or in replay.

@WeAHPs are extremely grateful to Connect Health @Connect_Health _ for sponsoring the tweet meet on Wednesday 22 June.
