What's Happening in Yorkshire and the Humber?
Nurses particularly, have the potential to work in isolation from others and reinvent the wheel when it comes to ways of working, guidelines and seeking out new knowledge. Having a region wide group to network through, use as a personal resource and gain support can be a real lifeline to both the experienced and novice researcher. Although the Yorkshire & the Humber RCN Research Society Group has been in existence for many years now, recently great changes have taken place with an emphasis on getting nurses, both clinical and academic into a fulfilling networking group and sharing skills, support and help. As co-facilitators of this updated group, we are very keen to extend a friendly welcome to all our colleagues across the region and beyond. We would like to use this fringe event to show where we are up to with the group, highlight the updated website and share good practice from the region. Any members who wish to join the group and be added to the mailing list would be most welcome. We, the facilitators are very keen to explore new ways of keeping members in touch using the facilities we have available and maybe others too!
