Establish Family Integrated Care to Transform Neonatal Care
Following the success of our previous neonatal events, attendees said that they would benefit from a new event primarily focusing on Family Integrated Care and how it can transform your service, engage your workforce and empower neonatal parents. This NHS conference is the perfect platform for you to come together with neonatal leads and teams from across the country. You will learn how other trusts have implemented and sustained FICare and overcome their challenges and what the future will look like for FICare.
