Parity of esteem in pre-registration nursing education: a working symposium

The Shape of Caring review challenged the nursing profession to ‘raise the bar’ by seeking ways to develop nurses equipped to deliver whole-person care, adaptable to the growing complexity of the population. This challenge was embraced in the new NMC standards for education when it included the requirement for registered nurses to be able to meet holistic care needs across a range of mental and physical health challenges.

University of Roehampton, in collaboration with South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust and St George’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, are inviting you take part in a working symposium to explore the meaning of parity of esteem and shape an innovative approach to realising this practice. This will be a rich and diverse event bringing together knowledge and experiences held by students, people with lived experience, practice partners and clinicians from multiple disciplines.

This co-inquiry will explore several themes including the challenges of developing a professional identity responsive to mind and body, and speakers will include No. 1 best-selling author, award-winning comic, presenter, and mental health campaigner, Dave Chawner Speaker
