A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
REGIONAL LEADERS’ MEETING
The BACN has a number of regional groups that provide support, education, and networking on a local level. Every group is led by a BACN Regional Leader who demonstrates commitment to other nurses in the area through peer-to-peer review, promoting and chairing meetings and events in their area, and engaging with BACN members in a local capacity.
In August, each BACN Regional Leader will meet in London to discuss and evaluate the last round of regional meetings, while planning the final details for the autumn round in September and October. They will also consider issues that they face within their particular region, and coordinate actions for the future with other leaders, along with BACN HQ staff.
AUTUMN CONFERENCE UPDATES
Booking is now in full swing for our Autumn Aesthetic Conference in Birmingham on November 8 and 9. Workshops and masterclasses are open for booking for the first day, along with our evening dinner reception held at Edgbaston Stadium on the eighth. For more information regarding agendas and booking, go to the events page of the BACN website.
Throughout the last few months a number of BACN shadowing sessions have taken place between BACN members and BACN Shadowing Providers. The service offers practitioners new to the aesthetic specialty the opportunity to work alongside and observe experienced aesthetic nurses in clinical practice, as well as learn about the treatment techniques and products used. Although not carrying out any treatments themselves, the opportunity to ask questions in relation to theoretical and clinical practice at the end of the day has been considered extremely valuable to members who have completed the service.
To find out more information about the shadowing and being matched with a BACN Shadowing Provider email BACN Operations Manager, Sarah Greenan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
