Our School at #NET2017


This week the 28th. International Networking for Healthcare Education Conference (#NET2017), which is hosted by The Higher Education Academy (HEA) was held at Churchill College, Cambridge and as always our school was well represented and contributed to the content of the programme very effectively. The NET conference has become firmly established as the leading annual conference for networking in healthcare education and is a great place to share innovation and the latest experiences from healthcare education with a wide range of colleagues from across the UK and overseas. This year the school contributed the following presentations and posters to the conference:


Anna Waugh (Lecturer) “Taking the role of the other: Dementia education for the current and future dementia workforce”

Kirsteen Lang (Teaching Fellow) “Student nurses’ experience of mentorship in clinical practice”


Caroline Adam (Lecturer); Caitlin Kiley and Michaela Kane (Adult Students at Hamilton Campus) “Teaching and Learning Beyond the Classroom: A student nurse perspective

Caroline Adam (Lecturer); James Matthews and Robert Neil (Adult Students at Hamilton Campus) “Scenario development for primary care simulation: A student nurse experience”

Raymond Duffy (Lecturer) “The perceptions of older students participating in Masters
level health and social care programmes about their experience at university”


Congratulations must go to the students who presented work at this conference who were warmly applauded by all who attended. We hope to see them back presenting with us again once they are out there innovating in healthcare practice!
