A specialist nursing team in Burns and Plastics Care have designed a new poster to showcase their work on the transition of burn care for patients at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.
The specialist team assist in moving children make from paediatric services to adult services when they turn 16 or 18, or when patients move back into the region and from acute services to primary care.
The new poster is designed to align with the “6Cs” national nursing values – care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment.
The poster highlights how the transition of care is supported in a number of ways by the specialist nursing service, including:
- Working closely with Midlands Burn Operating Delivery Network colleagues (MBODN)
- Communicating closely with colleagues in acute care services and imary care services
- Providing an outreach service for adults and children throughout Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire
- Leading on teaching and educational opportunities for health care professionals locally, regionally and nationally
Vicky Galsworthy, burns and plastics specialist nurse at Leicester’s Hospitals, said: “The poster shows our commitment to teamwork and the proactive, holistic approach we take towards our patients and their families, raising the profile of the fantastic work of our specialist nursing team.
“We are continually evolving and developing our service in line with the needs of our patients by using data trends as well as patient and staff feedback,” she added.
The 6Cs Transition in Burn Care poster (see attached, top-right) will be showcased at the British Burn Association Annual Conference in Birmingham from 20-22 May.
