2019 Building on the Best

Building on the Best broke all the records – number of delegates, exhibition booths, speakers setting the stage alight and valuable CPD hours leaving nurses with an overall feeling of empowerment as they strolled out the conference doors and stepped back into their workplaces

Professor Emerita Jill White has a lot to share on the global Nursing Now Campaign as the Western Pacific Representative, as does leading nurse practitioner Dr Chris Helms speaking on Taking Ownership of Your Scope of Practice. Watch workshops on ear irrigation, heart health, managing diabetes and the latest data and updates in immunisation; and listen to the panel discussion on The Future of Primary Health Care Nursing that launched APNA's Nurse 2022 campaign.

Check out the slides and videos below from the 2019 conference, and remeber that this can be counted as CPD hours.
