Around 3,000 delegates are expected to join Health Education England's (HEE) Centre for Advancing Practice annual conference next week – the biggest event of its kind to date.

The theme of this year’s event on 7th and 10th November, is ‘Empowering People, Transforming Care’.

The virtual conference will be livestreamed from Birmingham and the programme includes a host of talks, workshops and networking sessions which will be recorded for sharing post-event.

Dr Julian Barratt, who leads the Centre for Advancing Practice, said: “This year’s conference encompasses and reflects a huge range of the issues which colleagues working in Advancing Practice encounter as part of their day-to-day activities.

“It promises to be informative, thought-provoking and also, we hope, fun.”

Charlotte Beardmore, the SoR's executive director of professional policy and co-chair of the HEE Centre for Advancing Practice Programme Board, said:

“It’s fantastic to see the support and growth in opportunities for Advancing Clinical Practice for the Multi- professional Workforce across health and social care supported and driven forward by Health Education England.

"This event will showcase the work of radiographers and other practitioners working at advancing levels of practice and will provide inspirational presentations from a wider range of speakers.   The Society and College of Radiographers will have a professional bodies virtual stand at this event, with further information about advancing practice for the radiography profession.”

The conference will also see the launch of a new quarterly journal partnered by HEE and MA Healthcare. The International Journal for Advancing Practice will be the only dedicated peer-reviewed journal for all areas of multi-professional advanced practice across health and care.

Further details of the journal will be announced in due course.
