Professor Annetta Smith, head of nursing at the University of the Highlands and Islands and Professor Gill Hubbard, head of research in the department of nursing at the University of the Highlands and Islands, will present a joint inaugural professorial lecture in the Centre for Health Science, Inverness on Tuesday 26 June.
Professor Annetta Smith: ‘Nursing and midwifery education and research in the Highlands and Islands: Lessons from the past, forging our future.’
Innovative nursing and midwifery practice in the Highlands and Islands has historically influenced policy that has shaped the delivery of healthcare locally, nationally and globally. Nurse and midwifery educators, practitioners and researchers have collectively underpinned that innovation. As models of healthcare delivery evolve to meet the health needs of our population, nurse and midwives will continue to play a key role in shaping healthcare delivery throughout the Highlands and Islands and beyond through innovative education, research and practice.
Professor Gill Hubbard: 'It's only Teenage Wasteland: Can we improve their health-related behaviours?’
The overwhelming majority of teenagers are remarkably healthy. Nonetheless, their present behaviours can cause serious health problems in adulthood. As an ex-secondary schoolteacher and present day health services researcher, I have strived to help young people make informed choices about their health and well-being. But is it just a teenage wasteland and I've been wasting my time, or are the kids alright?
