A few highlights:

Professor Siobhan Nelson (Canada) urged us to think about how we describe our work as nurses – simple but challenging – because the way we allow ourselves to be described influences how others will describe and collaborate with us… My tweet:

matters . How we describe ourselves will influence how others describe us too.

I was inspired by Shirley Baah-Mensah, who reminded nurses in minority groups to aspire to success. My tweet:

We have to be brave, have courage to make thing better for the future:equal in value, no matter what their color -Mensah

Dr Kay Currie from Glasgow described the use of nominal group techniques to build a survey instrument… that got me thinking! I got a little distracted by some creepily disturbing entomology though… https://twitter.com/RhondaWilsonMHN/status/590443032933171200

Andrew Grundy presented soem mental health research findings about Mental Health care planning that struck a chord… my tweet:

talks abt #care#planning being abt what the provider needs, not serviceusers’

Prof Lesley Wilkes presented some disturbing research findings… very confronting – commendable research. Must have been hard for the researchers to keep hearing about the topic over and over again – but yet an important contribution to improve nursing knowledge and practice. My tweet:

Confronting but needed: Results of 1st study in Australia abt experiences of among African migrant woman

Professors: Carole Haigh, Debra Jackson and Graeme Smith share some very useful tips about the job of a peer reviewer… very helpful tips…
