Who are the change makers?
how to make an impact in your community
The QNIS 2018 Conference will take place on 28th March, at the John McIntyre Conference Centre in Edinburgh.
A range of speakers will address delegates in the main hall – including Karyn McCluskey, chief executive of Community Justice Scotland and previously director of the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit; Zoe Ferguson, Associate at The Carnegie UK Trust; and Alison Bunce, Director of Care at Ardgowan Hospice.
Plenary sessions and workshops will focus on making changes in the community – looking at the conversations we have and the teams we work in.
There will be an exhibition space which will host a number of stands and there will be time during the day for networking.
The 2018 conference will be the first one held since the Queen’s Nurse title was reintroduced to Scotland and some of the first cohort of new Queen’s Nurses will speak of their transformational journeys on the programme.
