Guest Presentation MSc Leadership 2015 – 2017
Dr Emma Stokes, Deputy Head, Associate professor, Department of Physiotherapy, Trinity College Dublin, President World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) and Member of CORU Health & Social Care Professions Council presented to MSc Leadership Year 1 on the subject of advocacy.
The workshop focused on the issues of advocacy and proposed a simple model for operationalizing advocacy efforts. It highlighted the need and opportunities for advocacy in professional practice and roles and provided examples of advocacy initiatives locally, nationally and internationally.
Speaking after the session MSc Leadership Student Áine O Brien said “I really enjoyed Emma’s session – it was an excellent workshop and will be very useful for my role as Physiotherapy Manager in Tallaght Hospital and for my organisational development project for Year 2.
