Event description

Description


The team from the School of Psychology and Speech Pathology at Curtin University are keen to engage as much as we can with community clinicians and to share and promote good practice. As such, we have decided to organise our fifth Speech Pathology Ideas Night (SPI night).

For those of you who missed our last SPI nights, this event was inspired by a similar series of events held in London, called Therapy Ideas Live. At this event for community clinicians, both clinicians and academics do lightning presentations (5 minutes) on a range of topics. See http://therapyideas.org/live

At our fifth SPI night we again have clinicians from a range of settings, and staff and students from Curtin presenting on a range of topics. We feel it is a showcase of some really interesting projects and ideas in Western Australia at the moment.
