A lecture on the impact of closing down specialist nursing services will take place at Glyndwr University tonight.
As part of Glyndŵr University’s 2012-13 Inaugural and Professorial Lecture Series, Professor of Nursing at Glyndŵr Professor Fiona Irvine will support the case for retaining specialist nurses in her talk at the Catrin Finch Centre.
At a time when the role of the specialist nurse is under threat, Professor Irvine will draw on her clinical experience and research work to argue the case for continuation based on the valuable care which they provide. She will also explore some of the challenges that specialist nurses face in their day to day practice and the key successes of their role.
Katie Dutton, events coordinator at Glyndŵr University, said: “Fiona’s talk touches upon a big issue within healthcare in the UK and has already proved extremely popular with places filling up fast.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming so many people to what promises to be a really insightful lecture.”
Glyndŵr University’s Inaugural and Professorial Lecture Series aims to showcase and celebrate the academic excellence of the university’s professorial staff, and bring leading research and thinking to the wider community.
The lectures are open to all and free to attend. Each lecture will be followed by a reception, where attendees will have the opportunity to meet the speaker and discuss the topic in more detail.
Fiona Irvine’s talk starts at 7pm in the Catrin Finch Centre on Glyndŵr University’s Wrexham campus.
