A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
The BACN had a fantastic time exhibiting at ACE this year in London; meeting new members and catching up with familiar faces. These events are always a great opportunity to speak to members about concerns, queries, or anything they want to know about the BACN. It was also great to meet nurses new to aesthetics to o er advice and guidance to them. We are already looking forward to next year!
The BACN renewals period has now come to a close, and we are pleased that retention rates have been matched year on year, securing our association going forward for the rest of the membership year, ensuring we can offer more services, and deliver a strong voice in the industry. Thank you to every member who renewed, and for those who still wish to rejoin, get in touch with the BACN HQ team via firstname.lastname@example.org
This year the annual BACN conference is sending out a call for posters. This is an ideal opportunity for members to showcase their knowledge and potential solutions to support, inform and educate their fellow peers. It is time for BACN members to display and share their wealth of experience and professional development within the speciality of aesthetics. Abstract contents can either be research-based using established scientific methods, or demonstrate experience and information from individuals or collaborations i.e. from clinics or an institution.
All posters submitted will be peer reviewed by the programme committee and those who have submitted will be informed of the outcome by email. Posters will be on display during the conference lunch break and at a dedicated poster session which will enable all the delegates to have a chance to view those on display. All we ask is that you or one of your collaborating authors stand by your poster at the conference so you are available for delegates to discuss your work. There will be acknowledgement for the most innovative and/ or educational posters. For more information regarding this, along with suggested topics get in touch with BACN Operations Manager Sarah Greenan at email@example.com.
