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
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.

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."
