Rising to the challenge in Nursing

5 May 2020 

Whilst the Mental Capacity Act 2005 can be seen as an aspirational piece of legislation, it remains a challenge for professionals to ensure that the principles and guidance around best practice are followed in a consistent, person-centred way. Challenges to practice abound – with capacity at end of life continuing to be a particular area of challenge due to the combined impact of illness, medication, and prevalence of fluctuating ability to make decisions. 

This national conference celebrates International Nurses Day in a year that also marks Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday. This event will consider the pioneering characteristics of present day nurse leaders and ask; what can we learn from the past and present endeavours of our colleagues?

We’ll focus our attention on the unique contribution of nursing in the delivery of palliative and end of life care to those in our society and consider future iterations of the professional nurse to reflect emerging needs for care.

We’ll offer you suggestions about how palliative nursing can maximize its potential impact at individual, national and global levels.
