AGM / Good Practice Forum Update
The AGM took place on 20th November 2014 and saw the ratification of new President, Diane Romano-Woodward, and the Board – Christina Butterworth, Susanna Everton, Kate Kyne, Lyndsey Marchant, Sarah Mogford, Anne Newham, Andy Phillips and Marisa Stevenson.

Outgoing President, Christina Butterworth, highlighted the achievements the Association has made, including the representation as a stakeholder in major strategic organisations, the publication of the textbook - Contemporary OH Nursing  - and being involved in the Revalidation pilot with the NMC and her involvement with the planned future of OH education.

Diane gave a summary of her vision for the Association, which includes using Directors for specific tasks and centralising the improved and modernised membership communication. The website is under tender for a complete overhaul and a far more inclusive involvement of members, using social media and events is planned. By engaging modern technology, it is hoped that more professional development access can be facilitated via the Association. Already Diane is engaged with insurance providers to ensure members have the best information when choosing their individual cover. Events already in hand include the AOHNP mini cruise in October 2015.

The survey for the future of OH Nursing is undergoing statistical analysis, but broad 'headlines' will be published both in the December issue of Occupational Health in its featured article on the AOHNP and in discrete articles on the implication of the survey by Andy Phillips in the new year. The progression to Charity status is well under way and should facilitate, for example, a database of OH Nurses that can be used in a similar way to the FOM, who have their qualified physicians register commercially available.

The Best Practice Forum was titled: 'Mind Games - identifying the game plan not just being part of it.' The day was well attended, with seats being at a premium. The slides and summary from the sessions will be available, as usual on the members section of the website in due course. (Presentations are now available under Events - AOHNP Events by clicking on the relevant links). The day proved that there is an appetite for the Association and its members to move, progress and ensure it is best placed to engage with its members and represent their voice at decision making and policy level.

Places are limited (due to available room size) at the next AOHNP national event - the Ruth Alston Dinner & Lecture held during the Health & Wellbeing Conference in Birmingham on 3 March 2015 - so book early to avoid disappointment.

For more information on any events, please either visit the AOHNP website, members only Facebook page or contact Linda, our administrator, by phone or email.

NO TIME TO LOSE Campaign

Christina Butterworth, President AOHNP (UK) commented
"Representing 350 occupational health nurse practitioners in businesses across the UK, we welcome IOSH’s fresh focus on workplace carcinogenic exposures. It’s vital that all the different professional disciplines involved in occupational safety and health management work together to improve standards and outcomes in health risk management and health surveillance."
