Nursing in Practice virtual festival ends

Nursing in Practice virtual festival ends

The Nursing in Practice virtual festival, for nurses who work in primary care or in the community, finishes on Wednesday.

The free online event has been run since September with more than 50 webinars, 20 exhibitors and 4,000 delegates.

Although the live events will finish on Wednesday, all content will be on-demand for delegates to watch whenever they like until 14 December.

Webinars and sessions have included clinical and professional topics such as:

  • Retirement from Marilyn Eveleigh, independent nurse consultant and Nursing in Practice advisory board member;
  • Wound hygiene from Lisa Wood, clinical strategy manager at Conva Tec;
  • The burden of influenza on older adults from Pauline MacDonald, independent consultant nurse at Infection Matters.

The last day will tackle various clinical and professional topics including contraception, the flu vaccine and cervical screening. 

Delegates have also been able to visit digital exhibitor booths – such as from the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the Zero Suicide Alliance and GambleAware – as well as download documents to refer to at a later date.

Cogora, the publisher of Nursing in Practice, took the decision to no longer run face-to-face events to ensure the safety of delegates, speakers, exhibitors and staff during Covid-19. This decision also applies to sister titles Pulse and Management in Practice.
