Nurse funded to lead care project

  • Comment

Stephen Smith has been appointed as lead nurse to oversee a compassionate care project at Napier University.

Mr Smith, qualified in the fields of adult and mental health care, will establish four 'Beacon Wards' - centres of good practice in compassionate care - throughout NHS Lothian, at which four nurse specialists will be appointed.

The three-year project, launched in June, is funded by a £1m donation from former nurse Ann Gloag OBE and aims to develop best practice in person-centred compassionate care.

Mr Smith said: 'We will equip students and nurses with the skills to respond to patients' more personal and compassionate care needs which can, unfortunately, be lost in the ward situation.'
