Danshell Nurses Conference Thursday 30 June 2016

This proved to be an engaging  conference  informing policy direction whilst giving context and real life examples of its application. Student LD nurses from Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) and Edinburgh Napier University (ENU) together with their mentors from across Scottish Health boards and Isla McGlade, Clinical Academic, GCU,  listened to the independent journeys and the value of Learning Disability Nurses in the Independent sector.
