The latest nursing news and RCN events
The RCN has responded to a new report from the Council of Deans of Health highlighting the impact of cuts to CPD budgets on nursing staff and patients.
As new guidance on asthma care is released the RCN and Association of Respiratory Nurse Specialists (ARNS) warn the condition must be treated seriously.
The RCN says cuts to school nursing roles are leaving vulnerable children exposed, as a report criticises failures to deal with female genital mutilation (FGM).
The RCN has today responded to a report showing older people are paying the price for the crisis in social care funding, and calls for sustained investment.
Two become one as the East and West Dorset branches merge to form the new RCN Dorset branch. Have your say about how your local RCN develops by coming to the branch AGM on 11 October. This is also a learning event with a speaker from the CCG in attendance to discuss the implications of the Dorset clinical service review.
This free one-day Royal College of Nursing South West workshop event is open to members and non-members. It will support nurse managers to recognise disability, understand their role in supporting staff with a disability, understand what a 'reasonable adjustment' is so that they can support staff to continue to work, understand the role of occupational health, and understand the legislation surrounding disability discrimination and the Equality Act (2010).
The RCN Northamptonshire branch has organised two more sessions to support members in understanding and undertaking the NMC revalidation process, following a similar and very successful event earlier this month. Places are limited, so book now!
If you are a Norfolk member, come along to this free event and meet other RCN members and representatives from your area.
