The University of Bradford Midwifery Society kick-started their busy fundraising year for APP in style with Freshers Week last month where they signed up lots of new members and donated % from each membership to APP - many thanks!
Looks like they had lots of fun recruiting new members to the society too!
They are now very busy organising a conference with midwife, Ellie Durant called 'The kindness conference: Getting positive midwifery cultures to flourish' which is taking place on 11th November 2017. The Kindness Conference is being jointly planned and hosted by UoB Midwifery Society and any current or aspiring midwives should definitely get this in the diary!
'This conference is likely to be different from others you’ve attended. We’re not afraid of digging into the hard issues and talking about the realities of midwifery culture right now.
But we’ll also be sharing some of the most inspiring, insightful and clear ideas for improving midwifery culture as well as tools and techniques that you can use to support yourself in practice right now. We want you to feel supported in your work because you’ve learnt from the best at the conference.' Read more on their Facebook event page here.
Tickets are on sale now with discounted £5 tickets available for University of Bradford students and staff but these are strictly limited, with all the money being donated to APP! Please click here find out more about the event and to purchase tickets.
There will be a number of stalls on the day including our own APP stall and we look forward to meeting everyone there on the day!
In the run up to the conference, Ellie is also doing a series of blog posts entitled 30 days of Kindness in Midwifery' which you can check out on her website here to understand more about some of the themes which will be covered at the conference.
