On 14th October 2019 the International Allied Health Professionals (AHP) Day will be celebrated for the first time in NSW and across Australia. It is an initiative that was started 2018 by two clinicians in the UK to celebrate who AHP's are, what they do and why they are valuable.
AHPs Day is a social movement to recognise the contribution of AHPs to patient care and population health, and a chance to get to know and celebrate our skills and achievements with fellow AHPs.
The style of celebration and ownership of the day remains with allied health professionals. There are many ways to celebrate, appreciate ad inspire on #AHPsDAY: host a morning tea, create your own awards, make an action pledge and more! Join us on social media:
