Meeting agenda for the forthcoming Mental Health Nurse Academics UK get together
MHNAUK meet at South Bank University next week with a full agenda as ever. It’s likely to be a busy meeting with over 30 colleagues from all around the UK already registered to attend. Our meetings consist of presentations in the morning followed by business in the afternoons and for this meeting our colleagues at South Bank have invited speakers to present around the intriguing theme of ‘Reciprocity’.
Our afternoon business sees us welcome colleagues from the nurse consultants group to discuss ideas for collaboration and shared interests and perhaps even to formalise the link between our groups. We plan to catch up on the proposed review of nurse education in England and consider some new developments as our group aims to further its aims of influencing mental health nurse education, research and practice.
