Best Practice conference

Best Practice conference

Major themes for Best Practice 2018 will include a focus on the key challenges that threaten the stability of general practice, including the state of primary care premises, the stability of the GP partnership model, the workforce crisis, indemnity, the future of the QOF and what could be in the pipeline for the 2019/20 GMS contract.  Our speakers will also explore solutions to support GPs to better cope with the pressures of spiralling workload, tight funding, low morale, patient dissatisfaction and other barriers to evolving modern general practice into a service capable of withstanding the demands of 21st century society.

Also on the conference agenda will be how general practice is evolving in the new NHS landscape, the development of GP networks, the continued expansion of the NAPC’s Primary Care Home model, improving access and capacity in general practice, coping with winter pressures and implementing the GP Forward View.

Best Practice also offers a packed programme of RCGP-accredited clinical updates and masterclasses, bringing GPs the latest guidelines, research and evidence-based practice in the diagnosis, treatment and management of a range of conditions seen in daily general practice, including CVD, diabetes, respiratory disease, dermatology, neurology and women’s health.

Practice managers, business managers, managing partners and GPs will find new ideas for boosting practice profitability and resilience and working more effectively at scale in our Practice Business and Finance Theatre and Workshop Theatre. There is also a dedicated Practice Management Stream running across both days of the conference to prepare you for the complex challenges of running general practice at scale as part of a merger, federation, GP network or wider primary care system. We will be offering tried and tested solutions to the problems you are facing around how to work at scale as well as helping those practices already working at scale to realise all the potential benefits. The Best Practice Technology Stream will give you a glimpse at the mass of disruptive technologies that are – or soon will be - available to general practice, how you can adopt them and how they could help you, your practice and patients.

The full programme will be live soon

Best Practice in Nursing conference

Best Practice in Nursing conference

Best Practice in Nursing presents an annual, convenient and cost-effective opportunity to update your clinical skills and meet the bulk of your annual mandatory training requirements in one go, under one roof, for free – and gaining 12 RCN CPD points for revalidation. Best Practice in Nursing is an opportunity to raise the profile of nurses in general practice and the community, for you to network, share best practice and gain peer support as part of a community of 2,000+ nurses from across England.

Best Practice in Nursing is an event to raise the profile of general practice and community nurses and to highlight your leading role in the creation of a safer, more sustainable NHS for future generations. Delegates will also have an opportunity to hear from nurse leaders from the Royal College of Nursing, Queen’s Nursing Institute, Nursing and Midwifery Council, and other conference partners on key policies and issues, including nursing pay, workforce, revalidation and other hot topics. Nurse Prescribers and Advanced Nurse Practitioners will also be able to join GPs for clinical updates and masterclasses of interest and relevance to them in the Best Practice conference clinical theatres. All nurses attending Best Practice in Nursing will have an opportunity to be part of a wider primary care community in the Best Practice Keynote Theatre.

Best Practice in Nursing is co-located with Best Practice conference for GPs and the wider primary care community. The event incorporates the National Association of Primary Care’s Annual Conference where nurses can join with their colleagues from general practice and other primary care professionals to focus on new approaches to the development and delivery of primary care at scale.

There will also be the usual hands on training across health and safety, CPR and Anaphylaxis.

Plus two unmissable conferences

The National Association of Primary Care (NAPC) annual conference

Will define effective primary care as: a citizen’s first point of contact with the health and social care system; a person-centred (holistic) approach, rather than disease focused, to continuous lifetime care; a comprehensive set of services delivered by multi-professional teams with a focus on population health needs; the coordination and integration of care in partnership with patients and providers. 

The DDA's annual conference

The Dispensing Doctors’ Association (DDA) 2017 annual conference  once again proved the value of bringing hundreds of dispensing GPs together with their non-dispensing counterparts. In unprecedented numbers dispensing GPs from all over the country came together to discuss the challenges of today and the future.

The DDA conference will return for it's fifth year of partnership with the Best Practice event.
