UniSA Research Week poster competition
As part of the School of Health Science's Research Week, PhD students were required to submit a poster. iCAHE PhD student Michelle Guerin's poster was listed as a finalist in the top three posters. Michelle's poster portrays older individuals' experiences of leaving hospital and returning home, and provides important insights in the development of discharge policies.

Each month (and each edition of the Allied and Scientific Health News) will feature a Clinical Guideline in a new section of the iCAHE Guideline Clearinghouse page.
The Clearinghouse has links to various clinical practice guidelines in areas such as chronic disease, discharge planning and sports medicine. Each guideline has been scored using the iCAHE Guideline Checklist, developed by researchers at our centre, to guide clinicians on the quality and strength of recommendations found within these guidelines.
The feature guideline is the Australian Association for Exercise and Science's Position Statement on Exercise and Asthma.
