Nursing for All’, The QNI’s Homeless and Inclusion Health Conference and Learning Day, takes place on 17 June 2016 in London. This unique event will bring together a wide range of expert speakers on inclusion health. Inclusion health includes the health needs of those at most risk of marginalisation, including homeless people, vulnerable migrants, prisoners, Gypsies and Travellers, and sex workers.

 

It is the first time since 2010 that the Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) has organised a national conference in this specialist area of health practice, amidst a background of rising homelessness and a large increase in the number of refugees in Europe.

 

The day will give professionals and students from across health, housing, and the voluntary sector a chance to network and hear from expert speakers in the field of homeless and inclusion health. The event will showcase innovative examples of healthcare practice in this field and present current national policy to tackle health inequalities. Delegates attending have a chance to develop their knowledge, share practice and meet like-minded professionals at this unique national event.

 

Speakers include:

 

  • Dr Crystal Oldman, Chief Executive, The QNI
  • Dr Devin Gray, National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow, Care Quality Commission
  • Duncan Selbie, Chief Executive, Public Health England
  • Lord Victor Adebowale, Co-chair APPG Dual Diagnosis and Complex Needs
  • Eamonn O’Moore, Director of Health and Justice, Public Health England
  • National Youth Reference Group (St Basil’s homelessness charity)

Parallel sessions on the day include topics:

 

  • Tackling drug use: innovation and peer approaches
  • Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Healthcare – making the difference
  • Gaining a national voice and improving the health of sex workers
  • Compassionate end of life care for people who are homeless
  • Reaching young people at risk of homelessness and vulnerability
