We would like to invite expressions of interest from colleagues from nursing and the multidisciplinary team-working with older people to submit exemplars of leadership and innovation from their services. This is a wonderful opportunity to present your work in improving quality of care for older people to the wider healthcare community. The summit will bring together 250 delegates from across the spectrum of healthcare which will include those working in the service and recipients of services.

Why present?

  • Showcase your achievements to key national opinion leaders and users of the service
  • Share the learning from your experience of leadership and innovation that have impacted positively on healthcare/life of older people
  • Maximise your impact on patient outcomes
  • Communicate your organisation’s work
  • Build your profile and add to your experience

There are two application streams:
Oral Presentation. Successful submissions will be invited to present their project within a 20 minute slot.
Poster Presentation. A prize for the best poster display will be awarded by the judging panel

This is the first summit to celebrate leadership and innovations in older peoples services so we would encourage all members of the multidisciplinary team who work with older people to submit a poster and consider submitting for presentation.
