Wednesday 31st August 2016
Live Music Now is once again delighted to be working with the Royal Society of Medicine.
On 28 November 2016, we will consider the latest evidence about music interventions for children with learning disabilities, at the RSM's buildings at 1 Wimpole St, London. The conference will be accredited with 5 CPD points. Book your ticket at the RSM website.
"Following the success of our event at the Royal Society of Medicine last year, it is a great pleasure to be working in partnership with them again on a second conference. Our theme again is to examine the quality of the published evidence for music projects in healthcare settings. This year, our focus is on music interventions for children with learning disabilities, and has given us the opportunity to engage with some different and fascinating academics. The keynote address from Professor Adam Ockelford promises to be scintillating, as do the presentations from the many other eminent speakers who will be taking part. I hope you can join us." - Dr Peter Freedman, LMN Board
