The conference will support you to improve processes and practice with regard to handling complaints and concerns about nurses and midwives in light of the NMC new approach to fitness to practise which was launched in September 2018. The conference will include national developments and case studies from experienced Directors of Nursing at NHS Trusts on how to effectively manage complaints or concerns about nursing practice whilst supporting the nurse involved and ensuring patient safety. The conference will update delegates on the revised NMC fitness to practise procedures which put more emphasis on local resolution.

“We’re at a turning point for fitness to practise…The changes we’re making are about putting people at the centre of fitness to practise... We’re committed to pushing forward these improvements and shaping a new future for fitness to practise.” Philip Graf Council Chair Nursing and Midwifery Council 2018

“We’ll work more closely with employers so that as many issues as possible can be resolved quickly and effectively at a local level. We’ll give greater consideration to the context in which incidents occur, because we know that nurses and midwives face complex issues and pressures every day.” NMC 2018
