Over 250 delegates returned comprehensively completed evaluation forms, demonstrating the connection the conference has with the field, and the value the organisers and planning committee place on the feedback and suggestions we receive.
The forms have all been transcribed in full, the suggestions have all been collated, themed and summarised, and an action plan has been put in place to ensure that where possible, we act on the feedback to ensure that we provide an even better conference next year. The programme suggestions have been through the same process, and will be the starting point for designing the programme for 2007.
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and it is clear that in just two years the UKNSCC has established itself as a central and essential event in the calendar of UK smoking cessation workers that can play a vital role in the development of the field.
The feedback from the evaluation forms was excellent when asked:
Overall how would you rate this year’s conference?
31% said ‘excellent’
44% said ‘very good’
21% said ‘good’
4% said ‘average’
and no one rated the conference as poor.
and when asked:
Would you recommend this conference to your colleagues?
97% said yes!
1% (4 delegates) said no and 6 didn’t respond.
Over half the delegates are already planning to come to next year’s conference, and the vast majority of forms carried helpful programme suggestions for next year, demonstrating the delegates commitment to continuing professional development.
