About the day:

The Positive Commitment Conference 2023 is for qualified Learning Disability Nurses and runs concurrently with day one of the Positive Choices Conference for student LD Nurses, offering opportunities to network throughout the day.

This event has been running now for a few years and offers a space for former LD Nurse students who attended the Positive Choices event, along with existing LD Nurses, to have a forum to celebrate and share good practice.

The agenda will focus on the key themes of:

Improving Quality – including the Learning Disability Inpatient Standards

Workforce – including the All England Plan for Learning Disability Nursing

Practice Development – sharing and showcasing initiatives and practice examples

Final programme and speakers will be published nearer the time

The fee for the event is £40 which enables us to cover overheads and in the event of any surplus, it will be donated to the Cavell Nurses Trust. You can find out more about the Cavell Nurses Trust here cavellnursestrust.org
