The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust in conjunction with the Royal College of Nursing’s Black Country branch, are running a Nursing Conference 'Update on professional issues in nursing and impact on quality' on 15th July 2014.
The first event of its kind in the Black Country area, this free conference is a perfect opportunity for registered nurses and health care assistants to update their clinical and professional knowledge and their appreciation of their own accountability.
In the face of unprecedented pressure on health services and critical scrutiny of nursing practice at all levels, the conference is designed to support staff to deliver the high standards of patient care that everyone wants to see.
