Conversazione, the College of Human and Health Science's annual FREE health and social care conference/exhibition, brings together academics, policy makers, practitioners, and managers to share research taking place across Swansea University and South Wales.
Each year the conference has drawn submissions from a wide range of subjects, with clusters covering mental health, older people, personality and laboratory medicine. Topics for peer reviewed Conversazione 2011 Abstracts, Conversazione 2012 Abstracts and Conversazione 2013 Abstracts are now available.
The Wales Centre for Practice Innovation (WCPI) from the Centre for Nursing Innovation (which was formed in 2009), when partners from Abertawe Bro Morgannwg, Hywel Dda and the College of Human and Health Sciences collaborated to share their respective expertise. By building on previous collaborations the three sites were able to develop a strategic view of the scope and diversity of nursing initiatives. The WCPI, which represented an evolution of the Centre for Nursing Innovation, reflected the development of a multi-professional network, and was formally launched at their inaugural conference in 2011.
The Centre has already established links with other similar centres in England, Ireland and Australia and continues to build partnerships and share good practice in order to improve the quality of patient care in Wales.
