Scottish Medical Education Conference 2017
NES hosted the 7th National Scottish Medical Education Conference over two days at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. The conference incorporated the Scottish Annual Medical Appraisers Conference, the Scottish Practice Management Development Network Annual Conference, the Pharmacy Conference and the General Practice Nursing Conference.
The event outlined recent developments and explored the many challenges facing undergraduate and postgraduate medical education, training and appraisal, in a time of tightening resources and evolving regulatory requirements.
As always there were opportunities to hear about new developments and education programmes at the event, such as the workshop on Death and Dying: Introducing an approach to support the preparedness of medical staff to manage death, dying and bereavement, a session on the use of video in the workplace, as well as consideration of the ongoing challenges around big issues like junior doctor recruitment.
The NES Medical Directorate Awards were presented at a dinner on the evening of the 4th May. Feedback from those who attended shows that this event was greatly valued as both an opportunity to recognise & reward excellence and a further opportunity for networking and informal learning.
