Disease is powerful. It can devastate communities and countries, threaten global security and challenge modern medicine and health care. This exhibition explores how nurses have responded to deadly outbreaks, from the so-called Spanish Flu epidemic after the First World War to more recent contagions, like HIV/AIDS and Ebola
Join us for the launch of our exhibition, and find out about the past, present and future of infection control nursing during disease epidemics.
Speakers include Rose Gallagher, RCN Professional Lead for Infection Prevention and Control, Marguerite Dupree Honorary Professor University of Glasgow on her research on the history of infection control in hospitals and Elaine Ross, Infection Control Manager at NHS Dumfries & Galloway, on managing infection in today’s NHS.
Doors open 17.00 with refreshments. Talks begin at 17.30
