Deadline extended for nominations: Mental Health Nurse Academics UK Annual Lecture 2021

Nominations are now invited for people to deliver the Mental Health Nurse Academics UK Annual Lecture 2021.

The Lecture will be delivered by a mental health nurse working in, or out of, the UK. She or he will be the nurse who, from amongst those nominated and in the opinion of the MHNR committee, the Chair and the Vice Chair of MHNAUK:

  • has made the most significant contribution to the promotion and enhancement of mental health practice, nursing education, research and/or policy
    or
  • whilst being at an early stage of her or his career, is emerging as someone whose contribution to mental health practice, nursing education, research and/or policy is likely to have a significant impact in the future.

Nominations are welcomed:

  • directly from individuals wishing to deliver the Lecture
    or
  • from colleagues wishing to nominate an individual to deliver the Lecture.

Individuals nominating themselves, or accepting nominations from colleagues, are required to confirm their availability to deliver the Lecture on either of the two days on which the conference runs. The 2021 Lecturer may also be invited to take part in a pre-conference webinar, with other keynote speakers.

During their participation at the conference the MHNAUK Lecturer’s expenses will be covered, specifically including: a one day conference fee, one night’s accommodation and UK travel.

The deadline for receipt of nominations has been extended to Sunday 31st January 2021. Nominations should be submitted using this form and be sent by email to the chair of the conference committee [Professor Mick McKeown: MMckeown@uclan.ac.uk].

Nominees should also submit an abstract for their Lecture via the MHNR conference abstract submission portal, which is now open, selecting the option of ‘concurrent abstract’.

Members of the MHNR committee, and the Chair and Vice Chair of MHNAUK, are not permitted to nominate themselves to deliver the Lecture or to accept nominations from others. Nominations will be reviewed by the MHNR committee, the Chair and the Vice Chair of MHNAUK.

This is an opportunity for someone to deliver a prestigious keynote presentation at our annual conference, which will take place at the RCN Headquarters in London on 9th and 10th June 2021.

The decision on the 2021 Lecturer will be made by 15th February 2021, and all nominees will be informed of the outcome on or shortly after that date.

Abstracts from nominees not selected to deliver the Lecture will automatically be considered for concurrent presentation at the MHNR conference.
