On Tuesday 28 February 2017 the Humber NHS Trust clinical psychologists held a CPD day themed around Research. Alongside Humber NHS FT staff, three members of the clinical psychology doctorate programme staff contributed talks. First Dr Emma Wolverson discussed her Horizon 2020 work on developing a social network for people with dementia and their carers (Caregivers pro) and the benefit of working with different professional disciplines across various European countries. Dr Tim Alexander talked about the effectiveness of research teams and the experience of working on a CCG funded project on barriers and facilitators for young people to access mental health services and support with colleagues in the faculty and local charity MIND HEY. Finally, Dr Annette Schlosser gave a presentation on writing up both research and issues of professional concern, with topics such as psychologically informed post-EU referendum reflections and women in leadership roles in the profession. The day was well received and participants left having formed ideas of research and writing projects to initiate or complete. The day was a good example of how local NHS Trusts and universities can work together to develop and enhance links and research interests.
