Community nurses put personal safety at risk to ensure consistent healthcare

Dr Oldman said: ‘Nurses working in the community have worked hard, often putting their personal safety at risk to ensure that individuals and families not only received consistent healthcare, but also remained protected from the virus.

‘Community nurses have continually risen to the challenge, creating innovative ways of providing care to those in need.’

Starting on Monday 19 October and finishing on Friday 23 October, the conference will be held at various times over the five days for community nurses and allied health professionals.

Virtual sessions to cover community learning disability nurse education 

The conference’s speakers include the chief nursing officers from England, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as International Council of Nurses’ chief executive officer Howard Catton and Nursing and Midwifery Council chief executive Andrea Sutcliffe.

Sessions will also cover community learning disability nurse education and presentations on frailty.
