CHILL Seminars 2017
26th April 2017: Instrumental Regulation
The use of competency frameworks for the assessment of professionals’ competence, or fitness to practice, is expanding. Those who commission or use such frameworks are often unaware of the deep level of change they engender.
Dr. Bridget Hanna's research explores the impact of a changed regulatory and assessment framework on the professional practice and identity constructions of regulated psychologists.
Dr Bridget Hanna is a Lecturer in Work Psychology at Edinburgh Napier University

22nd March 2017: Finding the Feeling
Working in partnership with Boots and Nottingham Forest Football in the Community, CHILL were asked to evaluate the design and implementation of their sport and nutrition holiday programme for 5 to 11 year olds and their families, across communities in Nottingham. The evaluation is now complete and the Feel Good Club will continue to develop based on the success of this.
Our CHILL seminar presented the findings of the evaluation and offered an opportunity to network with those involved.
Executive Healthcare MBA
Our quality research underpins the Business School’s Executive Healthcare MBA - a course which prepares healthcare professionals for the challenges of organising and delivering complex healthcare services.
