New Quiet Study Space at the AHMS

Posted by Victoria Langton

After two years of persistent feedback from students, a new quiet study space is coming to the AHMS! It is currently being constructed and is expected to be completed by Monday 4th March 2019. It will be located at the eastern end of Level 4 AHMS and can be reached by taking the stairs from the Student Lounge on Level 3 (wheelchair access - use the Goods Lift at the eastern end of the building). The new quiet study space is designed to be used as a short-term study space, which means desks cannot be reserved and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately, there are no long-term storage facilities. No swipe card access is required - the room will be open during regular AHMS hours (7.30am-6pm). We hope you enjoy it!

Petition to support reinstatement of sleep laboratory at nRAH

Posted by Administrator

The sleep lab in the old RAH was decommissioned upon the move and a lab has not been re-created. This means that they are unable to perform the more sophisticated 'level 1' sleep studies that are required to assess complex sleep issues that arise in the subgroups of inpatients that the nRAH is designed to care for (stroke patients and spinal cord injury patients as two examples), and they are also unable to optimally care for a range of other patients including those with chronic respiratory failure requiring nocturnal non-invasive ventilation and narcolepsy. The AMA(SA) and SASMOA both support the reinstatement of the sleep lab on this basis.
