Health at the Margins has brought together nursing students, educators, researchers and practitioners in homeless healthcare to learn and share ideas.

Speakers have shared their practical experiences when developing ground-breaking homeless health projects and highlight what they’ve learned along the way. The day focused on educating, inspiring, and connecting people with a passion for improving healthcare for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

Thanks to funding from the Oak Foundation and the Queen’s Nursing Institute, the event was free to attend. The day was organised by the Queen’s Nursing Institute and kindly hosted by King’s College London Nursing Department. The event was chaired by Sue Boran, Director of Nursing Programmes, The QNI.


Speakers and presentations:


  • Street nursing in Southwark
    Kendra Schneller, Nurse Practitioner & Serina Aboim, Nurse Practitioner, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust


Some feedback from the attendees:

“This event has completely changed the way I think about homelessness. It has challenged me, and this will impact on my role as a nurse but also in the rest of my life.”

"The event was extremely well presented. I was very impressed by the variety of speakers and the range of topics discussed. I really liked hearing about the challenges and yet successes made when trying to do something different for homeless people. Very inspiring."

“I had not heard of the QNI prior to this event yet I am really impressed by both the content of the event and the "can do" spirit of the QNI which has inspired me.”
