The conference focused on the impact of diversity in relation to nursing and midwifery recruitment, attrition and transition into practice. It drew on the outcomes of the CANDLES Project (Campaign to Attract Nurses/Midwives from Diverse Local groups in Slough), including hearing from those who have benefited from the initiative, and the DATING Project (Diversity, Attrition and Transition Into Nursing), both undertaken by the Mary Seacole Centre for Nursing Practice.
