Best practice comes under the spotlight at Nursing Conference

Mental health nurses from across Norfolk and Suffolk will be given the chance to further their knowledge on a wide range of subjects at a special conference bringing best practice under the spotlight.

Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust's fourth annual nursing conference takes place tomorrow, 7 May, at Dunston Hall, in Norwich, and will bring together staff working at all levels and in various different services.

Its theme will be 'professional standards and practice'. The day will feature keynote speeches from high profile figures, including Margaret Berry, NHS England's Director of Nursing and Quality for East Anglia, Adrian Ing, Senior Officer with the Royal College of Nursing, and Ben Whur, Engagement Lead with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

During the afternoon, nurses will also be given the chance to take part in workshop sessions looking at subjects such as nursing and the law, revalidation and equality and diversity. The topics have been chosen based on feedback and requests from the nurses and include subjects they have said would prove of use and interest.

Michele Allott, Deputy Director of Nursing and Patient Safety at Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, said: "We are delighted that so many of our nurses have signed up to come along to tomorrow's conference, which will focus on professional standards and practice.

"Staff from across all  our Trust's services and level of practice will be attending, including our student nurses. We hope that it provides everyone with a valuable opportunity to further boost their knowledge and find out more about the latest developments in nursing.

"The conference has been organised to coincide with national nurses week and aims to celebrate the contribution which nurses make while providing a valuable forum for learning and development based on local, regional and national best practice."‚Äč
