Subject Expert Groups

Florence Nightingale Foundation facilitates a number of Subject Expert Groups (SEGs) to create change on issues identified by our members, scholars, and alumni as most important to them as nurses and midwives working across a range of sectors and to better patient outcomes.

SEGs are comprised of individuals who have professional expertise or lived experience in the area of focus. SEG members commit to working collaboratively to use their collective networks to influence the policy agenda and contribute to the evidence base. SEGs have UK and global representation.

We currently have four SEGs:
