Please see message below from John Pitchers (who is also the current chair of Chair for the Association of Anatomical Pathology Technology). The message is in relation to his MSc project in Public Health but could play a part in wider service improvements in the future.
Here is the message from John:
Fellow APTs, I need your help!
I am conducting research into how APTs perceive the risk of infection in certain population groups.
I am interested in looking at people from populations that are considered marginalised because of lifestyle or personal circumstance. This research is being carried out as part of my MSc in Public Health.
This is a great opportunity for APTs to talk about a subject that has not been highlighted before, and to make a real difference to mortuary practice and the experience of bereaved people.
I am looking for a cross-section of the profession - NHS or public mortuaries, Trainee to Manager.
