Tracy MacInnes (Interim CHPO) and colleagues will be hosting a Twitter chat to celebrate AHPs Day on October 15th. This will provide an opportunity for us all to come together, share what we do and highlight our impact.
Anyone with a twitter account can participate and AHPScot will moderate the conversation and keep us to time. The moderator will ask an intro question followed by 5 additional questions, each of which is allocated 10 minutes of discussion time.
To allow time for you to think about the questions and your answers in advance they are posted below. On the night of the 15th, questions will be posed by the moderator preceded by a number (Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, Q5 & Q6) and participants can respond to questions in the same order (A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 & A6), add comments, favourite or RT answers that intrigue them. Using the hashtag #AHPsDayScot in each tweet will help us keep all of the tweets together and maintain the conversation.
