Scottish LearningDisability Nursing Network 12th Annual Conference


1st Excellence in Practical Awards Ceremony

Strengthening the commitment One Year On


Liz and Allison both attended this conference which took
place at “Our Dynamic Earth” through in Edinburgh. It was a fantastic venue for
a very rich and stimulating day. The conference took place the day after the
new Learning Disability Strategy for Scotland Keys to Life was launched and the focus of the day was strengthening
the Commitment. The speakers for the day were of a very high standard and each
talked about a different aspect of Strengthening including- Capability,
Capacity, the profession and Quality.

It was to our delight that we also received 3 highly
commended certificates at the Awards Ceremony for

  • Initiatives in reducing Health Inequalities
  • Education/Student Nurse Award
  • Innovation in Practice

The day finished with a very motivating and inspiring
Ministerial Address from Michael Matheson, MSP Minister for Public Health.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank
all those who have supported the work of the project over the past year and
subject to funding we look forward to the continuing work of the project over
the coming year.
