Virtual Conference

A Research and Improvement digital event

We're going online for the 2020 Annual Conference! On Thursday 24th September we'll host our first Virtual Research and Improvement Conference that will bring together our colleagues, patients, carers and community members in an exploration of themes and ideas relating to Solent care and services, as well as the things that matter most to you.

This will be an interactive event with a mixture of presentations, workshops and virtual networking opportunities, and in addition, the day will also play host to the Solent NHS Trust virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM).

A Patients Included event

Patients Included

Patients and our community members are at the heart of everything that what we do here at the Academy, which is we strive to ensure that our conference is Patient Included Accredited. We do this by:

share image

  • making the event free for people to attend,
  • working alongside our Side-by-Side network of patients, carers and service users in the planning of the event,
  • providing support support to our non-clinical community members so that they are able to participate in the delivery of workshops and presentations, 
  • ensuring that we deliver the virtual conference through a platform that is easy to access regardless of the device used, and 
  • providing support for those with accessibility needs so that they are able to engage with the event.

To find out more about Patients Included Accreditation please take a look at their website.
