Nursing Forum: Inaugural meeting July 2008

Key challenges to be addressed:

   Impact of initiatives such as Darzi review, ‘Nursing Futures,
    Future Nurses,’ EWTD and Modernising Nursing Careers;
   The impact of mandatory training on clinical care;
   The future role of all nurses – and ANPs – looking at roles
    they will play in the plan to deliver care ‘closer to home’;
   Developing Standards – e.g. Surgery Standards
    Terms of Reference for Forum
   To provide a forum to support those nurses involved in
    the care of children & young people (C & YP) across
    the partnership area

   To facilitate networking & the sharing of ideas /
    examples of good practice to encourage evidence-
    based practice

   To identify & analyse service/workforce needs & to
    consider the mechanisms to address these

   To influence national & regional initiatives for nurses
    working with C & YP, & to consider the implications for
    local areas

   To recognise training & educational needs and to
    influence strategies to address these
