Comment on: Nurses 'jump the queue' to get new uniform
I think barbaric and animalistic is pushing it just a little! And I''m sure there are more worthy discussions worth note than uniform grabbing...
Comment on: Introduction to safeguarding adults
These videos are fantastic. A real prompt to some of the more subtle abuse or abuse by neglect that I'm sure goes on every day in the NHS... Quite disturbing and emotional to watch, but worth it.
Comment on: Nurse appointed as trust chief executive
Fabulous news! This sends out a brilliant message to Nurses and the Nursing profession!
Comment on: Private care home nurses linked with NHS
This is a brilliant idea and should be used in other areas as well...
What a disappointing summary and headline for this piece of work.
Yes it is sensational headline which creates and continues the controversy of Advanced Practice roles. However, this is undone further on when the report acknowledges that Advanced Roles actually take some of the pressure off Junior Doctors, which surely frees up their time and allows them to deliver their care in a more calm and dedicated way, therefore creating a team and improving care?
I do feel, however, that the training/experience or potential experience for junior doctors is there for the taking and that these doctors and indeed medical students need to seize these opportunities just as nursing students, qualified nurses and advanced nurse practitioners have done for years. Training, development and learning opportunities are not always delivered on a plate and take careful determination and flexibility to achieve.
The one continued barrier to Advanced Practice roles is the continued lack of definition and regulation. How can we defend ourselves when there is no nationally recognised standards, training and regulation?
