Protecting the public and maintaining clinical standards. Annual Conference held at Westminster Studio, Central London.
Nursing standards are critical to care and quality, to patient safety, operational effectiveness and the financial performance of every NHS organisation in the country.
With increasing scrutiny and high profile reports of poor care standards, it is essential that we share good practice, learn from failures and ask the question – what can we do differently?
This conference and live learning broadcast put the spotlight on understanding nursing accountability in challenging times. It brought together leaders from across the nursing profession, along with all those involved in guaranteeing patient safety to share best practice and innovation and help ensure that professional standards are maintained at all times.
