The 33rd Annual BACCN Conference 2018             #BACCNConf2018

Sustainability in Excellence: The Future of Critical Care

For the 33rd Annual BACCN Conference, we're going to the Beach! On 17 & 18 September 2018, we’ll be welcoming the UK’s critical care nurses to Bournemouth. This lovely seaside town is surprisingly accessible, just a 30 minute train journey direct from Southampton Airport and less than two hours from London city centre by train.

The conference title is “Sustainability in Excellence: The Future of Critical Care” and work is already well underway to secure some fascinating keynotes who can discuss themes on this essential topic.

We feel that this title is extremely timely given the ever-increasing demand on the NHS coupled with a decrease in financial and political support. In the future, it is going to be incumbent on frontline staff to make do, to make things happen and to ensure that our patients continue to receive the excellence in critical care that we all strive for in our daily roles.

Watch out for our call for papers later in the year when we’ll be looking for you to share your latest findings, research and case studies on a variety of themes related to the conference title:

  • Developing New Roles & Ways of Working
  • Building Resilience within Critical Care Nursing 
  • Education & Training
  • The role of Research Nurses and Nursing Research within Critical Care
  • Patient & Family Involvement within Critical Care
  • Quality Improvement Projects with a focus on Prevention

Your participation is key to making the conference the success that it is and we look forward to hearing from you.
