A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
Our latest round of Super Group Regional Meetings took place throughout September and October, with all meetings featuring our specialist VAT Roadshow aimed at providing advice for small businesses in aesthetics. The roadshow was led by Jonathan Bardolph, BACN treasurer, who often assists medical professionals with tax compliance matters within aesthetics. Previous roadshows have included nurse revalidation and GDPR compliance. We were joined at our meetings by a number of BACN partners who showcased demonstrations and education talks directly to nurse members.
All demonstrations and presentations also come with CPD points that members can access via their online member’s area and they can complete their reflective learning statements.
Within our meetings members also have the provision to engage in peer-to-peer reviews and hear from other members about issues facing them in their own clinics, along with group discussions led by regional leaders. Whilst the BACN has a successful and active Facebook group, the importance of face-to-face conversation with peers cannot be forgotten.
Many regional meetings also come with basic life support and anaphylaxis training, which for many members who longer work in the NHS, this is vitally important. All regional meetings are included in BACN membership, and members are able to attend any meetings throughout the UK. BACN events manager, Tara Glover, works directly with BACN Regional Leaders to improve existing meeting structure and develop agendas and content. BACN members are also always welcome to feedback on issues they would like raised at meetings, and topics of interest to them. Tara can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
