The BAPM Spring Conference takes place next month. The event brings together paediatric and neonatal trainees at all levels of training, ANNPs and AHPs as we deliver the latest updates on essential clinical topics. It also offers the chance for delegates to network and learn together.
We asked some of the representatives from the BAPM Executive Committee who have been involved in organising the Spring Conference, why they think you should attend.
Why should AHPs attend the Spring Conference?
“BAPM Spring Conference a chance to learn together as a multiprofessional team, share skills and management/care approaches. It's a chance to really get an understanding of the true value of team working. Plus it’s a great chance to network with other like minded professionals - you never know who you will meet!”
Sara Clarke, BAPM Representative for AHPs and Lead Neonatal Network Dietitian West Midlands Perinatal Network
Why should nurses attend the Spring Conference?
"The Spring Conference is a great opportunity for Nurses to learn about innovations in practice and network with peers nationally, with a focus on well-being and research."
Natalie Anders, BAPM Representative for Nursing and Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner, Manchester Foundation Trust
Why should trainees attend the Spring Conference?
"I’m so excited for this year’s spring conference. Last year’s event went brilliantly – we received great feedback about the sessions – which were engaging and inspiring. The Spring conference is designed with paediatric and neonatal trainees in mind – many of the presentations are targeted against curriculum goals and will really help you in your career development, whether or not you're pursuing neonatal grid training.
The Spring conference is different to other meetings – it's not about academics presenting their latest research (although obviously that can be great!) – it's far more accessible and fun – we’d LOVE to see you there!"
Katherine Pettinger, Representative for Trainees and Students and ST7 Trainee Bradford Neonatal Unit
