The Journal of Family Healthcare conference, held at London’s ILEC conference centre, is aimed at all those engaged in community services across the UK including midwifery and nursing. Delegates included policy makers and researchers; health, education and welfare professionals; service providers and practitioners; and representatives from local government. The delegates had an opportunity to gain exclusive access to high-profile speakers including Children and Families Minister, Edward Timpson MP, and hear about the most recent developments in policy and cutting-edge practice from across the UK.
Our Assistant Training & Congress Manager, Natalia Wieclaw, was joined by Aldyth Walker, Senior Midwifery Lecturer from Greenwich University, to co-present a workshop on empowering midwives and patients to manage and care for scarring stretch marks. The audience had the chance to engage with the presenters and hear a health care professional’s perspective on the subject in what was an incredibly interactive workshop.
We were also interested to hear that the conference also hosted a round table debate looking at the rising levels of vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy and childhood. The debate centred on how to increase and raise awareness of the supplementation policy for under 5s.
