In a bid to promote the "crucial role of practice nurses in ensuring safe medical device use", the UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is hosting a Study Day for Practice Nurses, on September 27, in London. Topics include: the Device Evaluation Programme; point-of-care testing in primary care; adverse incident reporting; decontamination; devices in the home setting; and vaccination/immunisation. The event will be a one-off, the MHRA told Clinica. For information and registration, go to: www.mhra.gov.uk/conferences/register
