Practice Nurse Forum

As a committee we are all very excited (as I hope you are) that the future holds an exciting platform for practice nurses working within Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG. There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes to ensure the success of the forum. 

The organising committee are committed to the forum meetings being driven by what you want, so if you have any ideas please let us know.

Feedback, evaluation and reflection

The aim of the  Ipswich and East Practice Nurse Forum meetings is to create an environment where you feel supported to exchange best practise; share/learn together through access to relevant educational updates; as a resource for networking and peer support and serve as a platform to create a strong empowered practice nurse presence within Ipswich.

It is essential that we receive your feedback on the events, so we would ask you to please complete the online evaluation document; once completed you will receive your attendance certificate. 

In addition there is also a link to a personal reflective document, which reflects the requirements for your NMC revalidation.
