Last year's theme followed on from the previously postponed 2020 Annual Forum of Co-Production, focusing on collaborative working during and in a post-pandemic world.

On the behalf of the AIMS Rehab Project Team, we want to say thank you to everyone who attended our 2021 online Annual Forum.

Commencing from Friday 3rd February 2023

Fridays at 10am, monthly

Over the coming months, the Project Team are hosting monthly virtual drop-ins for you to bring questions about the remote and face to face self and peer-review process.

The sessions are open to all members and the group will address any issues that you would like to discuss, get clarity about or ask questions, and support you with the accreditation or developmental process.

We ask that you submit your questions to the team prior to attending the clinic, as this will help us to open the clinics up to other members who may wish to ask the same question and also allow us to ensure we have the right people present in the clinic to provide guidance.

Who is it for?

Staff and peer-reviewers who are currently involved in self/peer-review and have questions or require specific support. The clinics are open to all membership types.

How long are the sessions?

The sessions last for 45 minutes and are conducted as a group or individually if no other members attend. This is a great way for you to gain a better understanding of the process, ask specific questions, address any anxieties in preparing for accreditation and/or peer review visits and to meet and share learning with others. It is also a great way to network with our members and share best practice.

We ask that if you join, you join for the full session, as this will enable you to get the most benefit from the drop-in.

How do I join?

You can join if you are a member of the Rehabilitation Quality Network.

However, we ask that where possible you let us know in advance of the meeting if you intend to attend and that you let us know what question(s) you would like to ask.

If you would like to attend, please email rehab@rcpsych.ac.uk.
