Public Sector Event
Effective Ward Manager
Venue: Hallam Conference Centre
44 Hallam Street
Date: 16 Oct 2014
Synopsis: Whether you are currently a Ward Manager, or aspiring to be one, this event provides a unique opportunity to learn from the experiences of other Ward Managers and Nurse Directors to develop your skills as an effective Ward Manager.
The conference will update delegates on key issues facing Ward Managers in practice including changes to the Ward Manager role itself.
The Francis Inquiry into Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust recommended that: "Ward nurse managers should operate in a supervisory capacity, and not be office-bound or expected to double up, except in emergencies as part of the nursing provision on the ward. They should know about the care plans relating to every patient on his or her ward."
The day will focus on strengthening and supporting the ward manager, developing competence and career progression and the practicalities of running an effective ward.
