Armstrong Medical was pleased to support MedAll with the first ‘Caring For The Carers’ virtual event in November 2020.
Guest speakers Dr Linda-Jane Mottram, Professor Elie Azoula and Dr Stephen Hearns provided over 300 delegates with an insight into the scale of burnout and fatigue amongst healthcare staff and the impact of this. Delegates also heard practical and supportive advice on fostering a working environment that safeguards and prioritises the psychological wellbeing of staff.
Our Armstrong Medical Virtual Training Studio with live product demonstrations was available during the evening to answer any questions about equipment and provide user support.
“Supporting MedAll with the Caring For The Carers programme is a small token of thanks to our many healthcare workers at this difficult time. A big thank you to our speakers and to all those that took the time to join us for interactive training in our Virtual Training Studio.” Nigel Armstrong, Sales & Marketing Director
