This virtual conference aimed at nursing professionals working with children and young people will provide the latest guidance, policy developments and resources that will enable enhanced care and service provision for infants, children, young people and their families.

Leading experts will present on broad range of contemporary issues including:

• State of Children’s Health in the UK
• Safe staffing for children (tbc)
• Paediatric Early Warning Systems (PEWS)
• Immunisation, Vaccinations and COVID-19
• Trauma informed care
• Knife Crime Prevention
• Sepsis
• Healthy Children Programme
• Panel discussion - How do we prepare for and address the repercussions of COVID-19 on childrens' health?

The virtual conference model

Two weeks prior to the event date, two releases of pre-recorded content will be available to view. The actual event day is 3.5 hours and consists of two keynotes, live Q&A and interactive panel discussion.  

"This virtual conference offers an opportunity for CYP nurses to come together and discuss key issues facing us as a profession. The programme is diverse and interesting. Come along and take the opportunity to virtually meet up with colleagues from across the UK". Professor Dave Clarke, Conference Chair
