The latest CHSS Newsletter is now available to read or download on our website. We hope you enjoy our latest news, research features and staff profile.

This issue highlights recent and forthcoming CHSS events. We are delighted to announce two events focused on the future of primary care. In March we host the EFPC Symposium at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. On 18 April, Dr Arvand Madan delivers our 2018 Open Lecture at the University's Grimond Building. Full details on p5.
Our research news focuses on care at both the beginning, and nearing the end, of life. CHSS leads Britain's contribution to a new international project to increase breastfeeding rates. Professor Jenny Billings and her team recently evaluated the Kent and Medway 'OneCare' pilot. Based on the 'Buurtzorg' (neighbourhood care) model, it aimed to improve patient experience in Kent and Medway.

‘CHSS People’ profiles Dr Vanessa Abrahamson, who studied for her PhD in stroke rehabilitation as a CHSS student. Now a full-time researcher, she talks to us about her journey from occupational therapist to academic researcher. You can subscribe to future issues by post. Our online archive is also available.

We love to receive feedback, suggestions or comments on our newsletters.
