Speaking Queen’s Nursing Institute Annual Conference September 28th
With great thanks to Dr Crystal Oldman @CrystalOldmanChief Executive of the Queen's Nursing Institute,Farida Barlas @FaridaBarlasQueen’s Nurse Network Manager and all at the Queen’s Nursing Institute @TheQNI for the kind invite and great honor to speak at
The Queen’s Nursing Institute is a registered charity dedicated to improving the nursing care of people in their own homes.
We trained district nurses until the 1960s, in a model that was copied across the world. This model of care was instrumental in developing a comprehensive, highly-skilled service in the UK that meets the needs of millions of people every year.
Today we improve nursing in the home by:
Developing Queen's Nurses who are committed to high standards of care in the community, helping them to make improvements in practice and to act as leaders and role models to others
Influencing policies in England, Wales and Northern Ireland that affect healthcare in the home and the quality of community nursing services
Funding projects led by community nurses that improve care for their patients
We want excellent nursing care in the home for everyone who needs it there, provided by nurses and their teams who have specific skills and knowledge.
We see a future where more people are treated at home, rather than in hospital, technology is exploited to the full, and the relationship between nurse and patient is central to quality healthcare.
