RCN film on nursing with dignity wins top award at festival

  • Comment
An educational film commissioned by the RCN has won a Gold World award at the prestigious New York Festivals International Film and Video Awards 2009.

The film was produced in partnership with Help the Aged and is a key component of the college’s ‘Delivering Dignified Care’ practice support pack.

RCN general secretary Peter Carter said: ‘I am delighted to see that the dignity film has received international recognition.’

He said the ‘dedication, passion and enthusiasm’ of those involved has resulted in a film which ‘accurately illustrates how people feel when they don’t receive dignified care, while providing examples of how nursing staff across the UK are already leading the way in providing the best possible care’.

Paul Cann, director of policy and external relations at Help the Aged, added: ‘Nurses play a crucial role in ensuring older patients are treated with respect and we’re delighted this film will encourage a higher level of dignity in care.’
