BEAI - Continuing Education Series: Medical Devices in the Community Study Day

10.00 am | Wednesday 11 Sep 2019

Tullamore, Co Offaly

The Continuing Education Series: Medical Devices in the Community, was developed to give health care professionals a better understanding of medical devices available to the community; an overview of the role of the Clinical Engineer in the Community, and their contribution to improved healthcare and better patient outcomes.

The BEAI is the professional association of Biomedical & Clinical Engineers in Ireland. We run several study days throughout the year, many of which are suitable for all Allied Health Care professions. In September we are hosting Medical Devices in the Community – which we hope may be of interest to Occupational Therapists. 

Below is a short outline of the day, a calendar of 2019/2020 events and a registration form. You can also let us know if you are interested in any other study days and topics
