Following the great success of the 1998 conference in Glasgow with a majority of presentations being done by health advisers, we continued this policy in 1999. We also felt we needed to look at the support available to health advisers in an increasingly stressful and pressurised work environment, by having some time to look at complementary therapies, which we could use for clients and ourselves in order to improve the quality of our lives and practice.
Research and audit continue to be an increasing part of our workload and was well presented and displayed during the conference.
