This year we will be focusing on conversations around death and dying, and amongst other things we will be discussing:
The Foundation for Infant Loss Training: Infant Loss:Identifying Best Practice between hospitals, funeral directors and crematoria.
The annual AAPT conference is an annual opportunity for delegates to update their knowledge of scientific, technological, legal and social issues relating to the healthcare science profession of anatomical pathology technology.
The event also offers a unique platform for exhibitors to present their products and services to a tailored audience of those working within the mortuary sector.
The 13th annual conference of the AAPT will be held on Saturday 30th September 2017 in Cardiff at the wonderful Park Plaza Hotel
This is a 5 day course held at The University of Edinburgh’s Old Medical School in the heart of the city. It provides a unique opportunity to study a hands-on, practical approach to cranial/facial reconstruction, soft tissue injury to the face and airbrush cosmetics. A series of structured modules have been specifically devised to give those completing the course the ability and knowledge necessary to complete the reconstruction of a badly traumatised head.
On Friday 20th April 2018, the AAPT will host another training day on issues involving consent.
The event is held in liaison with the Human Tissue Authority (HTA), and AAPT members can register for a discounted fee of £100. Members of the Bereavement Services Association (BSA), Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and the Royal College of Pathologists are also entitled to the discount if booking before 31st January 2018.
