Steering group

The conference agenda is the result of expert knowledge and professional guidance from our Steering Group which is made up of senior advisers who bring a wealth of experience from very senior roles in health, government, education and international policy.

Why attend

Nightingale2020 is a unique conference. By reflecting on the legacy of the first modern nurse, Florence Nightingale, we’re focussing on the role of nurses and midwives in health and care today and in the future. Delegates from all backgrounds will find something to inspire their work and outlook.

In the 4,000 seat auditorium we’ll hear from exceptional international speakers; our scientific committee is creating an agenda of lively peer-led presentations in the academy and delegates can network and build relationships in the exhibition hall, where lunch will be provided.

Our conference agenda is organised into four tracks which are current to today’s nurses and midwives covering: nursing impact, world health, professionalism and digital health.
