Pushing the boundaries of children's care

 Bernie Carter 21 Apr 2017

Time is running out to register for the RCN Children and Young People’s Conference – make sure you don’t miss out.

This special event, which runs alongside the RCPCH’s annual conference, is a great opportunity for children’s nurses to come together and share their ideas with colleagues from around the world.

This year’s jam-packed programme has something for everyone with sessions ranging from transforming care of children with continuing needs, to tackling acute care challenges.

Other sessions will cover caring for children and young people in A&E departments and improving hospital care for young patients with autism.

We will also consider ethical challenges around engaging with children and their families, as well as the moral issues associated with intersex children and genital normalising surgery.

As you explore the range of expert sessions on offer, you also have the chance to see your own work in a global context and explore children’s nursing across a wide range of settings.

It’s a truly unique opportunity to find out all about the work of innovative multidisciplinary teams, pushing the boundaries to improve the lives of children and their families.

To view the full programme or register for the conference please visit the RCPCH website.
