Nursing in Practice event

Today I spoke at the excellent Nursing in Practice event held in the impressive Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. http://www.bridgewater-hall.co.uk/

It was my first event for them so I had a relatively small seminar room which was completely full! So I hope to be asked to return! My book is going to be reviewed for both their journal and the CPHVA - the UK's leading professional organisation for health visitors, school nurses, nursery nurses and other community nurses working in primary care.

Nursing in Practice have written their account of the day here

As a speaker it is always good to be given plenty of information before the event, your presentation up and running ready for you and generally being 'looked after' - the NiP team certainly did that. Lunch in the Green Room was a real treat - thank you!

Due to attending a meeting in the morning I wasn't able to catch other presentations other than a fascinating one by the Royal Northern College of Music on their project on 'Music for Health'. http://www.rncm.ac.uk/

I attended the presentation yesterday at the NIP Conference in Manchester. It was not only informative, but inspirational. As a student health visitor it is always beneficial to meet people who have been through postnatal illness and recovered and Elaine's story will help me when I am helping mothers in the future. Thank you for sharing your story with us Elaine.

I attended this conference and was lucky enough to hear Elaine speak. As a mother, midwife and student Health Visitor I am still amazed at how this area of womens health can be overlooked by some health professionals. Elaines talk was truly inspirational and I am just so thrilled to hear that from her saddness such good work is being done. Well done you your son is lucky to have you.
