Registration is now open for Getting Serious About Prevention 2017: Improving cardiovascular health together

On 9 February 2017, we will be holding our fourth annual conference in Manchester, which will be hosted by Dr Dawn Harper, GP and Media Medic. This event will once again offers an exciting, wide ranged and packed agenda, which has been developed in response to delegates’ feedback from the 2016 event.

For the first time, the Royal College of Nursing is endorsing the event and we will have three training sessions on: What is CVD risk and how can it be communicated?; how to engage patients in a conversation about Dementia: the forgotten cardiovascular disease; and on motivational interviewing techniques and How to avoid negative reactions. These sessions have been designed to address common issues and questions and are aimed at frontline practitioners delivering the NHS Health Check.

We are also introducing roundtable discussions in three of the sessions. This new format will enable delegates to learn from the experiences of others and be part of a discussion on the challenges and opportunities for action on the following topics: improving quality, working in collaboration, and equity and health inequality.

The programme for the day also includes time to explore our vibrant exhibitor area, an opportunity to learn from others through the poster presentations, as well as a selection of oral presentations on a range of topics from data science to learning from the diabetes prevention programme. With something for everyone  places will book up quickly so please register here.

 We look forward to seeing you at next year’s event.
