Conference 2015 roundup


Our annual conference on 16 March was attended by around 500 delegates who explored the theme of creating a culture of openness, safety and compassion.

The conference was chaired by BBC Medical Correspondent Fergus Walsh and included an interactive programme of workshops, discussion and debate.

Workshops explored topics including revalidation and reflective practice, embedding patient safety in the undergraduate curriculum, differential attainment and the our research programme,
