Nursing Revalidation for Specialist Practice and Advanced Roles work at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust to be presented at National Conference
Anne McDermott Transplant Nurse Consultant and Alison Pottle Nurse Consultant, Cardiology Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust will be presenting an extended session on ‘Working autonomously and running services: identifying skills and competence needed for practice, and safely expanding skills and competence’ at the National Nursing Revalidation for Specialist Practice and Advanced Roles Conference on Wednesday 2 December 2015 at the ICO Conference Centre, London.
Anne McDermott and Alison Pottle will share their knowledge and experiences from Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust and will discuss the skills and competence needed for autonomous practice and nurse led clinics; following frameworks, protocols and guidelines for safe autonomous practice; and safely expanding skills and competence.
This CPD conference will focus on the development of Nursing Revalidation for Specialist Practice and Advanced Roles. With nurses increasingly taking on advanced skills such as assessment, diagnosis, ordering an interpretation of tests, prescribing, treatment decisions and referral within nurse led clinics and services it is essential that nursing revalidation will ensure the safe regulation of specialist practice and advanced roles.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council has committed to introduce revalidation by the end of 2015 to enhance public protection. Through national updates and case studies including NMC revalidation pilot sites the conference will help nurses to prepare for nursing revalidation in your own advanced nursing practice and for the advanced and senior nurses working with in your organisation.
Case studies will focus on demonstrating competence in advanced practice roles for appraisal and revalidation including detailed extended sessions on competency development for new roles, demonstrating competence in nurse diagnosis including ordering and interpretation of investigations including x-rays, demonstrating continued competence in prescribing, working autonomously and running services and improving the quality of nursing appraisal with reference to specialist and advanced roles to meet revalidation requirements. The conference will look at the role and responsibilities of senior nurses charged with confirming revalidation for advanced nurses, including competence, practicalities and implications for getting it wrong.
