70@70 leadership programme: nurses and midwives ‘raring to go’
Seventy senior nurses and midwives have been successfully accepted onto the NIHR’s 70@70 leadership programme.
Clare Meachin, Associate Director of Nursing at the NIHR and 70@70 Programme Director, said:
“The response to 70@70 has been amazing. The programme has proved extremely popular and it has been gratifying to see so many nurses and midwives share our excitement for the purpose of 70@70.
“The field was strong and the passion to innovate, improve future care and strengthen the research voice shone through. Many congratulations to our 70 successful applicants who are now raring to go, and for those who didn’t make it this time, your hard work and talent has not gone unnoticed.”
The 70@70 programme is for senior nurse and midwife clinical leaders with experience of building a research-led care environment for patients, and a record of developing existing practice and contributing to a research rich environment.
A 70@70 launch event will take place in London on Thursday 9 May 2019, where Louise Wood, Director of Science, Research and Evidence, Department of Health and Social Care, is confirmed as a key note speaker.
