RCN Nursing Workforce Standards – the Rep's Role in Supporting Members (Part Two)

01 Dec 2021 13:00 - 16:00

Online Event



RCN representatives are invited to a workshop which will enable them support members (either individually or collectively) when incidents occur or issues need raising by using the RCN Workforce Standards to articulate the need to improve working conditions to maintain and improve patient care.

The second session of this two-part workshop will be of interest to all reps supporting members in the workplace by providing a background to the standards, an opportunity to explore how they can be used and offer discussion around current developments to enable reps to gain confidence in using the standards to influence and challenge organisations.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to: 

  • describe and explain the structure and detail of the standards
  • understand how they can be used effectively
  • identify a strategy to help challenge and influence their own organisation when raising a concern
  • reflect on how they might support the development of examples of how the workforce standards are being applied in practice.

The session will be delivered via Microsoft Teams. Part one took place on 25 November 2021.
