Call for abstracts: #NPNR2016

Over on the #NPNR2016 website the call for abstracts has now been published. The conference takes place on September 15th and 16th, at the Nottingham Conference Centre, and our theme for this year’s event is mental health across the life course. Here’s some more information:

The NPNR conference is the leading mental health nursing conference in the UK.  This year our 22nd conference will explore the challenges faced by mental health nurses in delivering evidenced-based compassionate care across the life course.  We will consider both the complexity of issues faced by individuals throughout the life course, and also how well services and nurses meet the mental health needs of the people they collaborate with .

Once again, our intention is to provide an event where you can engage and critically debate issues (from education, practice and research) of relevance to the way care is provided and received.  The NPNR conference is the place for mental health nurses and those we work with to present and learn new knowledge, therefore we encourage you to submit your research and practice development initiatives.

The conference also provides a great opportunity to participate in discussion so that you leave the conference informed, enlightened and with new energy to engage with the challenges ahead. Alongside our expert speakers, great practice development and research papers the conference promotes a friendly and welcoming atmosphere that has been the hallmark of NPNR for over 20 years.
