A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
September was extremely busy, with a number of digital conferences operating which offered interesting webinars from BACN partners along with Q&As from Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance. Members were then invited to attend a virtual peer-to-peer review with others in their region to discuss their own issues and offer case studies. There are a number of BACN events throughout October. Unlike in-person events, virtual events aren’t restricted to a single location. Members can register for any of the digital conferences regardless of their region. Members can attend all sessions or only the ones which interest them, joining the meeting as and when they wish. All digital events are CPD accredited but members must register to receive login details and post-event certificates. More information can be found by contacting Tara Glover, BACN Events Manager, at email@example.com.
With it being ever more important that members can access their support network, members are reminded that the BACN has an active Facebook group of around 900 nurses who work and operate in the UK. This forum is managed by some of the BACN Board and is set up primarily to offer support and to ignite conversation around hot topics. Members can access the site by searching ‘BACN Members Only’ in Facebook. This is a forum only for BACN members, and everyone is a medical practitioner.
Members are reminded to check their details and update any existing clinic addresses in their members’ area of the BACN website.
The BACN Practitioner Finder is an opt-in service, and accurate information is essential for the public to use the service well. There are also specific questions that will allow the BACN to tailor specific services towards certain members.
