Hope to see you again at our next event. Why not join the BACCN and become part of the largest group dedicated to the art and science of Critical Care Nursing https://www.baccn.org/

This is what some of our delegates said of their experience on our study day:

  • Great Day
  • Awesome, brilliant de-brief for major haemorrhage
  • Fantastic day
  • I felt I needed more of a detailed debrief after triage session as I didn’t understand the paperwork
  • I loved that the simulations were linked to the triage event
  • I would like more strategic planning and overview of what actually happens in the background of a major incident
  • I’d really like Kevin’s details to learn more about planning advice
  • Excellent day, thoroughly enjoyed it
  • Enjoyed the inter-professional opportunity and the perspectives gained
  • Scenarios well-presented and managed
  • Great planning interesting to see and take other roles
  • More simulation please!
  • Food was amazing
  • Pre-conference materials to understand the triage process would be useful
