HLG Nursing Bulletin Vol 37 (2)

We are very excited to share the programme for the CILIP Health Libraries Group Conference 2018. Always a programme at the forefront of current thinking, many delegates remark each year that they learn more best practice in two days at the conference than they do in a whole year behind their desks.

2018 looks to be our best yet, with more delegate registrations than ever before and an exhibition hall that sold out with months to go. With exciting additions to the agenda such as knowledge cafés and a full health and wellbeing agenda including running and Tai Chi, the programme is also stuffed full with interactive sessions allowing you to get to the heart of your issues and do your job smarter.

On the main agenda, CILIP’s CEO Nick Poole will welcome you to the conference, along with Dr Mark Murphy, GP and Lecturer in the Department of General Practice in the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland, who will discuss his work in encouraging clinicians to source evidence-based material and share decisions with patients. On Day Two, Louise Goswami and Sue Lacey Bryant from Health Education England will discuss their goal to implement Knowledge for Healthcare, bringing its ambitious vision to reality to support #AmillionDecisions across the health service. Rachel Heydecker and Andy Wright from Carnegie UK Trust will then discuss how to engage the public in your libraries and inspiring them about health and wellbeing.

The main themes of the programme are:

  • Examining the future workforce: What will it look like and how can you retain and grow your relevancy?
  • Assessing professional skills and development: Stressing the importance of continuous self-improvement to stay a step ahead
  • Connecting with like-minded professionals: Forming strong relationships to ensure career longevity and fulfilment

So don’t miss your chance to join over 350+ health library professionals at Keele University, 13-15 June 2018. To register, view the programme, the health and wellbeing agenda, delegate fees, exhibitor list, accommodation and much more, view the Registration Website at www.regonline.co.uk/hlg2018.


The exhibition hall has already sold out but we still have a few spaces available in an over flow area, at a discounted price because of their reduced visibility. Please contact our event manager Carol Stevenson at Novus Marketing and Event Management, on contact@novusmem.co.uk (mailto:contact@novusmem.co.uk) to discuss your requirements. You can also follow #HLG2018 for updates on Twitter from either @NovusMEM or @CILIPHLG.
