"Practical solutions for your clinic and beyond…"

 

The National IBD Nurse Symposium is for nurses involved in the care of IBD patients. 

This symposium provides an ideal opportunity to hear presentations from experts in the field as well as upcoming rising stars and for discussion about the issues and challenges that face you in your daily practice.

As in previous years the programme has been developed by a steering committee of Nurse Specialists and has been organised and fully funded by Ferring Pharmaceuticals. The programme is varied and includes nurse-led case studies, expert updates on a wide range of issues and practical solutions for use in clinic.

The meeting is designed for the collective sharing of experiences, as well as how to apply current evidence in a practical way to help you in your own clinical work.

We hope you enjoy it.

David Armour

David graduated from Robert Gordons University, Aberdeen in 1995. David worked in various acute hospital settings in both Aberdeen and his home Orkney. A move to the unique high dependency gastrointestinal bleeding unit in Aberdeen, was the catalyst for a career in GI nursing. Two years were also spent in GI research and developing a patient database resulting in a number of publications. In 2006, David took up post as the first IBD/Endoscopy Nurse specialist for NHS Grampian. Two years later David moved to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness to establish the first IBD nursing post there. David is passionate about ensuring IBD patients in a remote and rural area receive the highest standard of care possible. The team have developed unique systems of care which have won national recognition. David was the BJN IBD Nurse of the year 2017.

David completed an MSc in 2011.

The children’s gastroenterology nurse was a new post when David started two years ago, and since he had no previous experience of gastroenterology as a speciality, undertaking the Salford IBD course (2015/16) was extremely useful. David’s next professional development objective is to become a nurse prescriber.
