Event description: TV broadcaster Fiona Phillips & Alzheimer’s Society Patron is to be the guest speaker for this conference at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) to mark International Nurses Day. The former GMTV presenter will speak at the Confidence in Care Conference: Achieving the Six Cs – Moving Forward. The full day conference will focus on the Six Cs – Care, Compassion, Competence, Communication, Courage and Commitment – that featured in a compassionate caring vision outlined by the Government last year. The vision aims to embed these six values in all nursing, midwifery and care-giving settings throughout the NHS and social care to improve care for patients. The conference, which is being jointly organised by The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and Staffordshire University’s Faculty of Health Sciences, will be held at the Shropshire Education and Conference Centre (SECC) at RSH. It will also feature a number of other high profile speakers, with the programme due to be finalised in the near future. The conference has been organised by a group of staff from the Trust and the University, including Chief Nurse Vicky Morris and Dr Wilf McSherry, Professor in Dignity of Care for Older People. Dr McSherry, who has held the post since 2008 in a joint appointment between the Trust and University, said: “This promises to be an excellent and informative conference, focusing on the importance of having confidence in nursing care and focusing on how we can move forward to ensure we are providing the best and most compassionate healthcare possible.Places at the Conference cost £60 per delegate, and it includes a buffet lunch and refreshments. To book a place, please write to Dr McSherry, C/O Corporate Nursing Office, The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, Mytton Oak Road, Shrewsbury, SY3 3XQ.
