The QNI is currently undertaking a two year project, to deliver a comprehensive programme to support community nurses to empower young people to transition smoothly between Children’s Services and Adult Community Services.

Making the transition from a structured and supportive children’s environment to adult services can be a bewildering and distressing experience for young people. There is currently a limited focus on the importance of supporting a smooth transition within primary and community care, where the majority of care takes place. During the past year we have scoped the ideas and experiences of primary and community nurses and nurse educators, which has enabled the development of an online transition learning resource, launched in March 2017.

Conference – book your place

We are now holding a Transition of Care conference in London at The Royal College of General Practitioners on Friday 10th November 2017. There is a very full and interesting agenda planned for the day, which will be free to attend.

You can register your place on Eventbrite here.

Call for Poster Presentations

We are also inviting poster entries from conference delegates to showcase and promote their work for young people’s transition services. Entries are invited from nurses, nurse educators and allied health professionals working in the community, primary care or education setting (universities) to promote any area of your practice that reflects the Transition of Care theme.

Please download an application form below for further information:

Please contact Dr Candice Pellett OBE at with any queries about the event and we look forward to welcoming you in November.

This project is funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing.
