  • Comment on: What to do when you're feeling like a spare part

    Dear Scandalous,
    Give the person a break. Perhaps their experience has only been as being left to feel they are a pair of hands. Perhaps they have not had the support of explanations about why learning these "basic" but vitally important skills are necessary.
    Not all mentors will be as supportive as you must be.
    I would suggest the fact they have posted something on NT would suggest they have an insight into learning and should definetely not be written off.

  • Comment on: Blood cancers, chemotherapy and the risks of neutropenia

    As a haematology nurse myself, I think this is one of the finest clearly put together "most important issues" lists that I have seen. Well done Graeme.
    Many areas like my own do not have a CNS in haematology and if that is your situation then contact your local Haematology or Day Unit to let them know of the admission you have received. They will I'm sure be very willing to give advice/input/guidance/onward referal etc if you require it. Even if you don't need help, DO LET THEM KNOW of the admission.
    For those interested to look further into the risks of neutropenic sepsis, there is an excellent video that can be viewed at that Macmillan Cancer Support helped to fund.
