QNI Announces Line Up of Forty Speakers at Annual Conference
14 July 2021
The Queen’s Nursing Institute has announced the full programme for its Annual Conference 2021.
The conference will, for the second year take place entirely online, over five days, 11-15 October 2021. Nurses are able to register for each of the five sessions separately.
The unifying theme of the conference is Building Back Fairer, with specific themed programmes on each of the five days. The conference theme acknowledges that community nurses have a leading role to play in combating health inequalities and creating better health for all members of society, from all ages and backgrounds.
The QNI is offering the event free of charge and it is open to all nurses working in community settings, and primary and social care, as a mark of gratitude and in recognition of the immense personal and professional achievements of the nursing workforce during the pandemic.
Forty speakers in nursing leadership, education and practice, healthcare policy and wider society will speak on a range of subjects of key relevance to community nursing.
Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, the QNI’s Chief Executive said:
‘I am delighted that we have been able to bring together such a fantastic and diverse range of speakers for this year’s QNI Annual Conference, ‘Building Back Fairer’. We are anticipating challenging and insightful presentations and debate on every day, from nursing and healthcare leaders from the UK and international organisations. Please join us to share ideas, develop solutions and help set the direction for community nursing today and tomorrow.’
