Brings together statutory and professional bodies, directors of nursing, clinical managers, primary care, secondary and acute care nursing managers, healthcare professionals and policy experts to hear from government and major nursing bodies who will provide a snapshot of where nursing stands in 2008. After a difficult 18 months, is nursing at a turning point as service delivery increases the focus on care in the community and quality of care in the acute sector?
