Annual Conference 2016

21st annual conference

21stAnnual NAPICU Conference

Thursday 8th and Friday 9th September 2016 at the University of Keele

“Achieving the best for patients: Beyond Restriction”

Our programme includes sessions by professionals from a broad range of backgrounds to help us to consider quality from a range of perspectives. This year’s programme will focused on the quality of care delivered in PICUs and LSUs. In the time of high level national change in the context in which healthcare is delivered, with growing financial pressures and increasing standards and regulation, the challenge is retaining the patient at the centre of our focus and enhancing the quality of care delivered to patients.

Our theme this year was wide-ranging including the return of the popular live debate, the patient perspective, personality disorders, design principles and the judging session for the Team of the Year Award, and the return of our successful Poster Session. Endcliffe Ward won the prestigious NAPICU Team of the year award and Kristina Englebrecht was the Poster Winner, the NAPICU Executive Com
mittee would like to congratulate both of our deserving winners for 2016.

We compiled a diverse and comprehensive programme ranging from national trajectories, to implementing outcomes of latest clinical guidelines, updates on new commissioning arrangements, to more scientifically rigorous quantitative and qualitative clinical studies, covering many aspects of care in in-patient psychiatric services. Our Keynote Speaker is Jane Clegg, Acting Chief Nurse, NHS England.

The programme was designed with our delegate’s feedback f21st Conferencerom previous years in mind and we hope it was interesting and enjoyable. We hope we provided you with some useful ideas and thoughts whi
ch you can take away and use in your place of work.
