The Nursing Liaison Committee (NLC) is now chaired by Ms Helen Hurst and has been in regular contact via teleconferencing to make plans and develop a strategy for the nurse liaison committee. Three of the members are now on the Programme Committee for ISPD 2020 and are looking forward to help deliver an exciting programme. The group regular produce replies as a collaborative to ‘ask the expert questions’ posed on the ISPD website. We have been allocated funding to use within the committee to support nurses to attend conferences and in particular to attend the Council meetings. The committee are contacted regularly by International nurses for advice and signposting, the group can offer support to nurses globally with an interest in PD. Members of the committee are also actively involved in many other initiatives connected to ISPD including guideline development and publications.
We are keen to work more closely with the other committees and will endeavour to contribute to ISPD over the coming years to acknowledge and grow the nursing voice within the ISPD Council.
