CASC Learn at Lunch

Background

In the Summer of 2020 and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CASC decided to set up monthly Zoom meetings that we now affectionately refer to as our ‘learn at lunch’ online events. These sessions are approximately one-hour in duration, free and open to all. Of course, you will need to be able to access Zoom in order to participate. Our first meeting took place on 6 August and was entitled ‘Are you paid the going rate?’ and had 40 attendees. Since then, we have tried to run a minimum of one meeting every month and interest in the sessions has rapidly increased with most events now exceeding 100 attendees.

Future events and how to get involved

Rainbows Children's Hospice

We have now confirmed regular meeting dates for Spring 2021. You can find out more by clicking here. In 2020, we asked those interested in our events to book places using Survey Monkey, but this is now proving too time consuming for our small team. Going forwards, we have decided to reduce the time and bureaucracy involved and for each future session we will simply be releasing the zoom codes for these events via our ‘learn at lunch’ mailing list, in our monthly e-newsletter and via our Twitter (@cascleicester). The infographic here, provides more details. If you want to sign-up to our ‘learn at lunch’ monthly email, please contact us via info@clinicalauditsupport.com. We will make sure all events are well publicised, with zoom codes distributed in good time, but from now onwards the emphasis is on those interested in joining these events noting them in their diary and attending at the appropriate time. And for those of you that miss events, we will record most of these and share outputs on this webpage (see below for films and resources from previous events).

Get involved

We are also eager to hear about what events you would like us to run as part of our ‘learn at lunch’ sessions going forwards. If you have any suggestions, then do please get in touch via the above email. We are also keen to use the events as an opportunity to give others the chance to showcase their work, so if you or your team would like to lead a future session and/or present information, then do please get in touch.
