Event description

Description

Nurses in the early twentieth century were told to practice “unquestioning loyalty and obedience” to their “superior officers” and the hospitals they worked in. But what happened to those nurses who raised concerns about such things as safety, conditions or staffing? An expert panel explores landmark events in the history of whistleblowing, from early trade unions to the Francis Report. The event will bring us up to date with a look at recent research being undertaken at Cardiff University and RCN work on safe staffing policy.
