Follow this event on Twitter #NurseCompetence

-Competence means all those in caring roles must have the ability to understand an individual"s health and social needs and the expertise, clinical and technical knowledge to deliver effective care and treatments based on research and evidence.” Compassion in Practice, One Year On, NHS England

The NMC has confirmed that nursing revalidation will start from April 2016. -Nearly 16,000 nurses and midwives will be the first to revalidate in April 2016. All 685,000 nurses and midwives on the NMC's register will go through the new process as their registration becomes due for renewal over the course of the next three years.” NMC October 2015

-This model of revalidation will increase the public's assurance that the nurses and midwives on our register are capable of safe and effective practice…It will provide a means of checking that those nurses and midwives continue to meet our standards in terms of conduct and competence, and that they have continued to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.” Jackie Smith, Chief Executive, Nursing and Midwifery Council

-The confirmation process involves nurses and midwives having a discussion about revalidation with an appropriate confirmer. As part of that discussion, they will demonstrate to their confirmer that they have complied with all of the revalidation requirements, except professional indemnity arrangement and health and character….. The confirmation process should encourage line managers to regularly consider and discuss how their nurses and midwives are engaging in professional development activities to maintain and develop their competence and improve their practice.” Nursing Revalidation Guide for Employers, NMC October 2015

This conference provides a practical guide to measuring, demonstrating and safely expanding nursing competence with a focus on delivering the competence element of the 6C"s and demonstrating competence in preparation for Nursing Revalidation. The day will focus on developing competence in advanced nursing roles and practice, both technical and non technical skills, using competency frameworks, identifying and expanding competences needed for practice, leadership competencies, monitoring nursing competence and identifying and responding where there may be shortfalls or a lack of competence. There conference will include a number of in-depth extended interactive sessions.
