Great Feedback from the British Menopause Society

Anne Tandy from the British Menopause Society contacted RDLearning to advertise some forthcoming conferences organised by the BMS on our website. Anne initially heard about our service when we wrote to her in July informing her that we had posted details of a different BMS event on RDLearning.

Anne said that she was impressed by the service and by the fact that it is free and said the British Menopause Society will be using RDLearning as a tool to promote future events including the annual conference next year.

College of Occupational Therapists

RDFunding has had a long standing good working relationship with the College of Occupational Therapists, who continually contact us to keep their listings upto date. Due to this good relationship the College contacted RDFunding on the 16th August to ask for our permission to distribute the prestigious Research Process Flowchart to 40 delegates who were attending a Research Governance event. Of course we have given them the green light and are delighted that they are using our services to full capacity.

RDLearning has been featured in a guide for health regulators to guide their work in Patient and Public Involvement. The document produced by the Joint Health & Social Care Regulators’ Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Group will be called A PPI Good Practice Handbook for UK Health Care Regulators. The document is in draft form at the moment. Once published, a link to the document will be provided in this blog.

Funding for Research into Learning Disabilities

RDFunding was contacted by Annie Hammerton, Research and Development Assistant, Colchester Primary Care Trust, on the 1st August 2006 to find some funding to conduct a study on Learning Disabilities. I found nine possible sources of funding for Annie to apply to and as a result Annie sent the following comments:

"Thanks Claire, very helpful indeed - in fact I can't tell you how helpful this has been"

I will keep the blogger updated on how Annie gets on!
