Transforming healthcare – are today’s leaders in nursing and midwifery up to the challenge?

Dame Cathy Warwick BSc, MSc, RM

Chair of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service and Visiting Professor at King’s College London and the Chinese University of Hong Kong Nursing Studies  Alumna 1970-75

With reference to Elsie Stephenson’s legacy and with a specific focus on maternity services Professor Warwick discussed why it is necessary to put the patient/woman at the centre of their care and the challenges this poses for professionals. She drew on examples drawn from her own experience, that with high quality leadership it is possible to overcome such challenges and suggest what systemic changes might be necessary to ensure that what may be seen today as innovative practice becomes the norm.
