Nurse-led teams invited to apply for innovation support
The Burdett Trust for Nursing and the Foundation of Nursing Studies are seeking applicants for the latest round of their Patients First programme.
It provides support to clinically-based nurses, midwives and health visitors to lead innovation on improving patient care across the UK.
Since 2009, the two organisations have supported 49 nursing teams and are now calling for applications to support a further 11 nurse-led teams to start in November 2014.
In a joint statement, they said: “Patients First offers teams a fantastic opportunity to show how nurses are leading innovation and championing care that is person-centred, safe, effective and compassionate.
“We are looking for people with innovative ideas, who want to engage with patients, staff and carers, who are keen to develop their own leadership/facilitation skills and who want to influence and develop person-centred practice,” they added.

The closing date for applications is 5pm, 9 September 2014.
