Nursing in Practice live event coming to Birmingham

Nursing in Practice live event coming to Birmingham

Nursing in Practice’s first face-to-face events since the Covid-19 pandemic began will continue with a conference in Birmingham next week.

The free-to-attend conference at the city’s National Conference Centre on 11 November for primary care and community nurses still has a few slots available.

Activities on offer include networking opportunities, insight from industry experts, conference sessions covering NICE guidance updates, clinical workshops, keynote speakers and CPD to contribute towards your portfolio and support revalidation.        

The topics covered in the four session streams include talks on diagnosing and managing atrial fibrillation, paediatric’s cow milk allergy in primary care, and digital innovation for type 2 diabetes.

Consultant respiratory nurse Jane Scullion will also be talking about addressing premature mortality in COPD, while the RCN’S professional lead for public health nursing Helen Donovan will discuss new guidelines for managing childhood vaccination and immunisation.

The streams will be chaired by Marilyn Eveleigh, registered nurse and advisory board member for Nursing in Practice; Dr Claire Rushton, retired GP and vaccinator; Dave Munday, health visitor and lead professional officer (mental health) at Unite the Union, and Jaimie Kaffash, editor of Nursing in Practice sister publication Pulse.

Interest is also building ahead of Nursing in Practice’s event in Liverpool on 5 October. Our event in London on 30 September welcomed delegates to the first of our major face-to-face conferences since the pandemic.
