I was really fortunate to be awarded a grant by the European Erasmus+ Staff Training Programme. This is a fantastic scheme which enables staff employed by Higher Education Institutions to spend up to five days working, training and teaching at specific Academic Institutions within Europe. I would like to extend my thanks to the Erasmus+ programme for helping to fund my trip to Leiden. I would highly recommend others to apply for this grant; it has really enhanced my own training and learning, as well as allowing me to build links with researchers and clinicians from around the world.
My journey with ViPP now continues with my involvement with the ‘Healthy Start, Happy Start’ research trial we are running at Imperial. Watch this space for future ViPP training events…..!
