Inaugural Symposium on Person-centredness in the Curriculum May 2nd - 3rd

Thursday 2 May and Friday 3 May 2013
(starting at lunch time on 2 May with a full day on 3 May)

Loughview Suite, Jordanstown campus, University of Ulster, Northern Ireland

The School of Nursing at Ulster has a strong tradition of national and international leadership in the field of person-centred practice. The Institute of Nursing and Health Research at Ulster incorporates the Person-centred Practice Research Centre directed by Professor Brendan McCormack. Against this backdrop the School has been developing a programme of work with a focus on person-centredness in nursing education. It is our contention that in order to achieve maximum effect in practice, person-centredness should be embedded within and across all programmes of education for health care professionals.

This year the School of Nursing at Ulster will host its Inaugural International Symposium on Person-Centredness in Nursing Education. The one and a half day symposium will include presentations and workshops that will appeal to those involved in nursing education in academic and practice settings.

Symposium themes 
The three key themes of the symposium are:

• To explore ways of infusing a culture of person-centredness through effective, contemporary higher education
• To share innovative approaches to the facilitation of person-centredness in practice learning
• To reflect upon how the experiences of teaching teams and service users and to consider how these can shape educational approaches and teaching strategies

Target audience
The symposium will be of interest to colleagues who have an interest in promoting person-centred practice through education in practice or academic settings.

£70 (includes car parking, lunch and refreshments on both days)
