Our programme manager, Fern Higgins Atkinson and Dr Maeve Hurley, trainer and founder of our programme, attended the University of Galway’s Health Promotion Conference on the 22nd June 2023 in Galway to present information on our Workplace Relational Scale.

The Workplace Relational Scale measures workplace relationships to inform the development of responsive health and social care interventions. This project has been developed over several years, led by Dr Maeve Hurley and Dr Sinéad Hanafin.

Maeve and Fern had an opportunity to display a poster and explain to delegates the methodology, the results and the impact of the scale on health and social care interventions in practice.

This annual conference provides a platform to highlight cutting-edge research and innovative initiatives, as well as to expand links between knowledge and action, and to broaden connections among a diversity of researchers, policymakers  and practitioners.

It is a great opportunity for Relationships in Practice to share our work and input into relational-based research and practice.
