Nursing in Practice has been bringing nurses high quality conferences for over 13 years. Earlier this month, Nursing in Practice returned to the road to visit Liverpool, at the Adelphi Britannia Hotel, for its first event of the year. Nursing in Practice events are free to attend for qualified primary care nurses and are designed to support them in gaining participatory learning hours, building their knowledge, and helping them stay at the cutting edge of the latest treatments and guidance. Nursing in Practice Liverpool 2016 welcomed over 180 nurses from across the North West and Wales. With revalidation about to come into effect, the visiting delegates were briefed on the requirements needed to complete their portfolio, making the transition process as smooth as possible. Attendees were able to learn and discuss current topics such as type 2 diabetes, sexual health, learning disabilities, plus much more. The event offered in-depth, cutting-edge seminars, interactive demonstrations and an educational programme that focused on key areas that are a priority for practices. Some of the delegates shared their event highlights with us:
- “I thought this event was very appropriate to practice nurses. It is good to attend such updates and have an opportunity to talk to other nurses as this can be an isolating job. It reassured me that I am giving out the right information and advice to patients and I learned about new evidence based practice.” Barbara Langford, Practice Nurse.
- “A fantastic 'up-to-date' learning experience that will directly enhance my practice. Networking opportunities will benefit our service.” Louise Hamilton, Nurse Practitioner.
- “It was the first nursing in practice event I had attended. I found the event well organised and found out new information about products suitable for patients in the North West.” Linzi Syvret, RGN.
- “Great opportunity to link with fellow nurses and to keep abreast of the latest guidance.” Claire Hiles, Lead Nurse.
