Position Statements & National Guidance

The BACCN aims to provide representation for its members, by responding to political and professional change; and by producing and publishing position statements. BACCN position statements intend to demonstrate the Association's commitment to contribute to policy debates and to inform and influence the national agenda on issues that are important to the critical care nursing community.

We are also involved in working more widely with external Organisations in the review and production of documents and standards for critical care which will also be of interest to BACCN Members.
