What will I learn?
The focus of the day will be on developing practical skills: reflection and evaluation will be a core component of the day.
Participants are encouraged to bring along their own mobile devices to take photos of the splints fabricated on the day. This will enable participants to reflect on their learning and consider how they can implement these practical skills to their clinical practice.
