For some years CLAPAI has been invited by Our Ladies Hospital for Sick Children and Children’s University Hospital to lecture as part of their postgraduate paediatric nursing programmes. The talks given have concentrated on a parent’s experience – medical, emotional, practical. A number of volunteers have shared their experiences – each person with a different story. The feedback from students has always been positive.
This year, a new combined programme comes into affect. The programme is being run from UCD. The Association are delighted that CLAPAI is very much a part of the programme going forward even though the course duration has been reduced from 18months to 12 months. The first lecture of the new programme will be given in January.
