NHS Education for Scotland (NES) Annual Virtual Conference 2021
Date: 27/05/2021 to 28/01/2023 Venue: Online
Having had to postpone the 2020 event, the 2021 NES Education Conference will occur as a virtual conference, incorporating the Scottish Medical Education Conference, Medical Appraisers Conference, Practice Managers Conference, NMAHP Conference, Dental Conference and Pharmacy Conference. NHS Research Scotland are delighted to be supporting the NES annual conference as an exhibitor.
After a 12 month period when the NHS has had to manage the consequences of a global pandemic, many routine education and training activities had to be suspended, adapted, or refocused in order to support frontline acute services. Now as the NHS recovers, a major emphasis will be on planning for the recovery of core education, training activity, and ensuring continued trainee progression to support the future NHS multi-professional workforce.
There have been significant innovations in the past year, increased utilisation of Technology-Enabled Learning, and significant benefits from collaboration between education organisations, professional bodies, and regulators. This year’s NES conference will showcase many of these initiatives and provide opportunities to share experiences and learning. There will be a mixture of plenary and parallel sessions as well as poster presentations and an exhibitor’s forum.
