17th - 18th March 2016
"Excellent conference, lots of networking opportunities and exceptional speakers."
Building on the success of previous years, the sixth Florence Nightingale Foundation Annual Conference took place on 17th & 18th March 2016 at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London.
The Conference was aimed at all nurses, midwives and healthcare professionals, across all aspects of healthcare delivery, seeking to enhance their Continuing Professional Development or Continuing Medical Education.
The two day Healthcare Learning and Development Conference provided delegates with the opportunity to:
Your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or Continuing Medical Education (CME)
This conference was developed as a single integrated learning event. Each masterclass programme had clear learning outcomes.
Delegates have access to electronic copies of the presentations and to a structured programme of reflection that can be used for appraisal, re-registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council or Health Professions Council or for Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL).
This year we were delighted to confirm the conference had RCN, RCM and RCP accreditation.
Delegate feedback from this year's conference was as high as ever...
"My new member of staff was blown away, she had never been to a conference that focused on all the nursing issues the way you do."
"Thanks for organising and delivering a brilliant conference. I thoroughly enjoyed the two days. Well done."
"Hats off to all at FNF for a storming 2016 conference, they are taking nursing to new frontiers."
"Excellent inspiring event. Still on a high and motivated. Thank you."

Following the success of the Project poster displays submitted for the previous events, we ran the competition for a sixth year. Entries were invited from clinical healthcare professionals which had projects related to workstream themes that they would like to share with the other delegates at the conference. The posters were judged by a small panel of supporting partners, and the winner was announced at the Gala Dinner. Please find below the digital posters submitted this year which were shortlisted.
