Festive Message December 2021
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Collaborating Centre partners,
This has been a year of ups and downs and in recent days yet more uncertainty about the pandemic’s effects permeates all aspects of our lives. Despite the many uncertainties, the Collaborating Centre for Values Based Practice has had a fruitful year, hosting 10 webinars over 2021 on a wide range of subjects from the role of women in childbirth to mental health to racial inequality, and encompassing a wide range of stakeholders from paramedics to digital health experts to sports professionals.
A links to the full list of the webinars and links to the online recordings is provided below. This year has also seen the launch of a new network on Public Mental Health while many others including WREN (the Whiteness and Racial Equality Network) have gone from strength to strength. Altogether we have had a very exciting programme with more to come next year.
We already have a detailed programme planned for the first half of next year and this can also be seen via the link below. We had hoped to move to a blended approach with participants present in person as well as online, but will wait until the new year to confirm.
We wanted to use this opportunity to thank our funders and St Catherine’s College for hosting the centre as well as Matt Ellacott and Mihir Sheth who support all the work that we do.
Finally, we wish you all a festive holiday season and hope that 2022 will bring better news on the COVID pandemic and that you all continue to support the work of the Collaborating Centre.
