About the event

JFHC Live is a new free-to-attend event supported by the Journal of Family Health Care.  The publishers of this highly respected and peer-reviewed publication, invite you to a thought provoking event that aims to educate, inform and update health professionals. Running from 29th to 30th March 2012 at London's Kensington Olympia, JFHC Live will offer attendees the opportunity to get the latest thinking on many topics affecting health care experts by some of the most respected names in the family health care arena. More than 30 exclusive, CPD accredited seminars will be targetted at their core readership of midwives, health visitors, community nurses, school nurses and dietitans. The two-day event will offer a comprehensive seminar programme on topics that affect delegates on a day-to-day basis – in essence a “live” version of the Journal. Their aim is to inspire health professionals by increasing their knowledge base and introducing them to new practice and thinking about what will assist them in their daily work.
