“Every year the presentations are varied and relevant to practice nursing. The speakers are always of a very high standard with thought provoking presentations.”

Despite incredibly cold, snowy conditions, on 6th March over 400 primary care nurses made it to the SEC Centre in Glasgow for a day of learning, networking, and reflection.

This year we had three streams of sessions for attendees to choose from, with a range of topics including type 2 diabetes, wound management, alcohol dependence syndrome, COPD, end of life care, ADHD, anxiety disorders, shingles immunisation and eating disorders.

Sessions that were particularly popular were:

  • The closing keynote presentation from Tommy Whitelaw, UK Project Lead, Dementia Carer Voices on how we can all make a difference when it comes to dementia.
  • A session on identifying and managing anxiety disorders led by Dr Blanca Poveda, Clinical Psychologist in Neuropsychology, and Wendy Young, Outreach Nurse, both from Astley Ainslie Hospital

We have already had fantastic feedback from the event attendees:

“I have attended NIP for several years. It’s the perfect way to contribute to my CPD.”

“This event was amazing. There was so much to learn in clinical practice and to be aware of new policies and procedures. There were many amazing products to help improve the quality of care for patients.”

Nursing in Practice events are conscious of bringing together the nursing community with key stakeholders from across the healthcare industry, with the event also offering an exhibition alongside the conference.

Leading pharmaceutical companies, charitable organisations and innovative providers were able to discuss the latest cutting-edge medications and showcase their products to the attendees.

Now in their 15th year, Nursing in Practice events are free-to-attend and are designed to support nurses in gaining participatory learning hours, building their knowledge, and helping them stay at the cutting-edge of the latest treatments and guidance.
