Stakeholder Engagement Session - Health Professionals

Health Professionals were invited to attend the Project’s Stakeholder Engagement Session, chaired by Dr Jane Murphy, on the afternoon of the 04 March 2011. The session was held at Regents College Conference Centre, in the heart of London's Regents Park.

The intention behind the Health Professional Stakeholder Engagement session was to encourage active representation and participation from health professionals across the health and social care sectors. Health practitioners, including nursing, midwifery, pharmacy and medical professionals were invited to share their opinions and suggestions on how professional standards and conduct can be maintained and reinforced in nutritional practice. The session also promoted networking between fellow health practitioners and raised the question around how nutritional skills and knowledge can be recognised among themselves and colleagues further.

The purpose of the session was to:

      • Update and inform Health Professionals about the Third Sector Project’s work and current activities 
      • Consult and discuss the draft quality assurance framework (in the early stages of development
      • Obtain constructive feedback and comments related to improving the blueprint and explore how frontline workers can be recognised and valued appropriately
      • Capture ideas and opinions on how professional standards and conduct can be maintained and reinforced among frontline staff
      • Engage with Health Professionals and encourage networking among delegates

The Stakeholder Engagement Session brought together professionals nationwide from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds.

At the session, the Project team presented a draft outline of the blueprint currently under consideration. Participants were invited to comment and provide constructive feedback. This helped to shape the future quality assurance framework and service model in order to address how potentially different categories of workers should be recognised appropriately and that there are opportunities for horizontal and/or vertical movement.
