We look forward to further developing our campaign for staffing for safe and effective care and welcoming Congress back to the region for the second successive year. Last year’s event was fantastic and we had an unprecedented four items on the agenda which inspired thought-provoking discussions throughout the week. As always, we had a great turnout from the North West. For further information about Congress 2020 visit the website.
The regional board recently funded a successful Digital Activist Masterclass which was well attended with delegates gaining a fascinating insight into social media, social movements and technology. Early in the New Year, the board has organised a conference around bullying which will explore how bullying impacts on both staff and patients, ways to create a healthy, inclusive and compassionate culture and how to manage and work with difficult behaviours and encourage change.
On a personal level, I was delighted to be elected unopposed to RCN Council and it is a huge honour to represent you. I look forward to working with you on RCN campaigns throughout the coming year. There are so many ways to get involved so should you want to be more active within our organisation, talk to your local representatives and attend your branch meeting.
I am also always happy to answer any questions that you may have about how you can get more involved, I can be emailed on firstname.lastname@example.org
