Academy of Nursing Conference 2019 - Abstract submission

3rd October 2019 RILD Building, RD&E, Exeter 

We would like to invite nurses in Devon to submit abstracts for posters, to be displayed at our first ever Exeter Academy of Nursing Conference. The theme of the conference is the ‘Future Nurse’:

  • what we nurses will be doing in the near to medium future
  • who we will be caring for
  • how we as nurses will organise ourselves to deliver the care that really matters to our patients

Keynote addresses at the conference will be given by Ruth May – the Chief Nursing Officer for England and Lisa-Bayliss-Pratt, the Chief Nurse for Health Education England.

We will also hear from Patient and Public Involvement speakers outlining what matters to them, our new Exeter University nursing students will tell us why they have chosen to be a ‘Future Nurse’, and there will be an exciting NHS Trust and University research and development announcement during the conference.

We will have a poster session (with prizes - four £50 amazon book vouchers!) for the best posters decided upon by the conference attendees.  We would like to invite submissions using the form  below. In your poster you should describe an example of nursing practice, innovation, education, or research undertaken by nurses in Devon that showcases how we are looking forward and developing nursing practice regionally.   Deadline for Abstracts: 6th September 2019.

You will be informed if your abstract has been accepted by 11th September 2019 when you will be sent instructions on size and layout.

Please also register online for the conference  to ensure you will be able to attend and present your poster if accepted.
