AHI will be running a series of webinars covering  our Best Practice Guidelines, with each webinar being led by the author.

The webinars will take place on Zoom and run for an hour in an evening (typically 7.00-8.00pm). They will consist of a short introduction from the host, followed by a 15-minute presentation by the author of the guide, followed by 30 minutes or so for discussion and Q&A.

The webinars will be free to AHI members and £10 for non-members. Non-members will receive a copy of the guide after the event. Of course, members have full access to all the guides. Log in to find them in the Member Dashboard.

Further details and booking information will be added throughout the year.
