The Phillips Ives review participation at summer schools

If you are attending summer schools come along to our 1-hour breakout session, at 14:00-15:00 on 15 July, and be part of the conversation on professionalisation of the digital nurse and midwife. The session will focus on understanding the experience of the specialist workforce, preparation for roles including your experience in education and training. We want you to share your thoughts and experiences to inform the findings of The Phillips Ives review. All professions welcome to attend. 

Points from the roundtable will be captured in a written record and an artist will also capture the discussion in ‘visual minutes’. These insights will be provided to the review's panels after the session. 

In the margins of the summer schools programme, The Phillips Ives review team intends to film ‘voxpox’ style short interviews with participants and to capture quantative data regarding one or more of the other review themes in the shape of a rich picture informed by delegate input. Quotes from the filmed interviews and visuals might be used at a later date as evidence to bring the interim/final review reports to life.
