#WeStudentAHPs - Monday 8th October 2018 7:30pm (GMT Standard Time) ‘What is an AHP?’ a #WeStudentAHPs chat

If you haven't joined in a tweet chat before it's very simple.    Here's a guide





 Chat Details

 

Hosted by WeAHPs using #WeStudentAHPs

This chat is guest hosted by @SarahBradder

Nurses, midwives, doctors and... AHPs? It's not always something that people remember and from experience students don't initially realise that they are training to be part of the third largest workforce in the NHS - Allied Health Professionals. It can be difficult when trying to establish your professional identity to marry the two together; I'm a radiographer AND an allied health professional, but marry the two together and you've got one kick-ass healthcare professional!

If you are planning on following the #WeStudentAHPs discussion throughout the day leading up to this tweetchat on Monday 8th October, then you'll learn all about what professions are AHP professions but don't worry because they are listed here:

  • Art Therapists
  • Drama therapists
  • Music therapists
  • Chiropodists/podiatrists
  • Dietitians
  • Occupational therapists (OTs)
  • Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs)
  • Orthoptists
  • Osteopaths
  • Paramedics
  • Physiotherapists
  • Prosthetists and Orthotists
  • Radiographers (diagnostic and therapeutic)
  • Speech and language therapists (SLTs)

So that's 14 professions, a wide array of roles, who are all allied health professionals! But what ties them together? Well, they all assess, treat, diagnose and discharge patients across areas such as social care, housing, education, and independent and voluntary sectors - offering real system-wide holistic care to help manage, support and coordinate care from birth to end of life. As a result of this they are perfectly placed to have an impact public health - addressing prevention and improvement of health and wellbeing in order to allow individuals to live their life to the fullest, keep active, maintain their support networks and access education, training and work.

It's really important that we recognise allied health professionals for who they are, what they do and the impact they have!




I've posted the questions below so that you can maybe have a think in advance about how you would answer these during the tweetchat itself:


Q1. Did you know what an allied health professional (AHP) was before you started your course/job?


Q2. Are there any allied health professions that you don't know about, or maybe didn't even know existed? (This is O.K by the way! We're here to share and learn).


Q3. What are some of the good things that you have seen AHPs do (whether it be from a personal point of view or from placement/work experience)?


Q4. If you’re a student who has already been on placement, or a current healthcare professional - what AHPs have you worked with? If you’re new to university and haven’t yet been on placement, which professions do you think that you’ll get the opportunity to work with?


Q5. Do you think that AHP roles are well-known/well publicised? How can we combat this?
