This conference focuses on developing systems and processes for ward accreditation for quality. Ward accreditation can be used as a tool to encouraging ownership of continuous quality improvement at ward level, reduce variation and increase staff pride and team working within their ward areas. Through practical case studies of NHS Trusts that have successfully introduced ward accreditation systems the conference will provide practical guide to implementing systems, and improving staff engagement in driving improvement on the ward.

“I have seen excellent ward accreditation models across the country. Where these have greatest impact, they are embedded in a culture of strong frontline leadership, positive engagement and staff support. The introduction of accreditation has in many areas served truly to empower frontline nurses and midwives – to develop and improve practice, to influence policy and to shape professional strategy … I strongly support this approach.”

Ruth May Chief Nursing Officer for England
