The INGID board are excited to announce our keynote speaker for the upcoming conference in Brussels.
We are fortunate enough to have Ms. Anna Gregoroski speaking on a topic which many nurses believe is becoming a more prominant focus of the care we deliver:- Interventions to promote self-care in people living with chronic illness’. This is part of the ‘Supporting patients living with PID’ plenary.
Anna has had an amazing career to date.
Anna began her nursing career with a degree at the University of Cape Town with her first role a ward sister at Red Cross Children’s hospital in Cape Town.
Anna is a consultant nurse since 2004 and clinical lead in the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Adolescents and Children with Complex Conditions service (TRACCS) at University College London Hospital (UCLH) since 2016. She has worked in Adolescent Medicine with children and young people with medically unexplained symptoms for over 20 years, initially at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and from 2016 at UCLH. Prior to that, she worked in paediatric Oncology and Dermatology as a ward sister and clinical nurse specialist respectively at GOSH.
Since February 2019, Anna is the chair of BACME, an organisation for professionals across the United Kingdom working with children, young people and adults with chronic fatigue syndrome and other fatigue conditions.
Anna’s professional interests include: developing and working in services for chronically ill adolescents; chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME) and medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) in children, adolescents and young adults; working with families to deliver rehabilitative treatment; mental health in adolescence; transition of chronically ill young people from paediatric to adolescent and adult care; transition of young people from primary to secondary school and secondary school to university; and mentoring and coaching staff within the NHS using a variety of interventions including Mindfulness and solution focussed approaches.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming this dynamic nurse and speaker to INGID 2019 .
