The faculty hosted a three-day visit from National University of Singapore and Ministry of Health in Singapore. They came to look at our Non-Medical Prescribing Course and Community Prescribing Course. With a view to them setting up a NMP course in Singapore.
If so, we would like to invite you to take part in a research project called ‘Providing Support and Care at a Distance’. The research will help us to better understand the experiences and needs of people providing help and support at a distance from the person they care about. These experiences may be different to those of people who care for someone they live with or who lives locally.
You are invited to take part in the research if:
- You are aged 18 or over
- You provide help, care or support to another adult (aged 18 or over), living in the UK, who lives at a distance from you (that is, it takes at least 1 hour to travel to see them), or you have provided this kind of support in the past 2 years.
The person you support may need help due to old age; dementia; a learning, physical or sensory disability; mental health needs; ill health or frailty. They may live in their own home or a care home.
You can take part in the research by completing a confidential online questionnaire. This is available at this link. If you prefer, the researchers can send you a paper copy of the questionnaire along with an SAE for your response (please see below for our contact details). The questionnaire will ask you about the kinds of help and support you provide; any challenges you experience; the things that help you provide support from a distance. All questions are optional; you can provide as little or as much information as you wish.
The research is being carried out at the University of Hull by Caroline White, Jane Wray and Clare Whitfield. Please email Caroline White or phone: 01482 463830 if you would like more information about the research or if you would like to receive a copy of the questionnaire.

International Nurses day #4 Final blog for today! The end of an era....Celebrating the transition to qualified nurse
Here are some photos of the soon to qualify September 14 nursing cohort, interestingly captured in the soon to be demolished Foss lecture theatre on the University of Hull campus. As one part of our university's history ends, another begins, with our nurses making their own history, as they embark on exciting new posts and adventures.
Over the past three years I have had the pleasure of being involved with many of these students, across all fields, and have seen first-hand their commitment and motivation to complete the course.
The degree programme is demanding; clinical work can be difficult and emotionally draining - as can be the academic pressures too! The past three years have flown by, and in that time these students have grown into confident and competent professionals, capable and caring nurses, ready to begin their careers. It will be strange not seeing these familiar faces around campus, but yet I am equally incredibly proud of what these students have become, they will become the faces that patients and clients will become familiar with rather than us, and that is exactly how it should be.
Happy International Nurses Day
|Dr. Andrea Hilton: Non-medical prescribing programme lead|
Today we're celebrating International Nurses Day 2017, and sharing the diverse skills and knowledge of our nurses.
Occasionally, colleagues, patients and other members of the public don't realise that many nurses can prescribe medication, and this extended role is one that contributes enormously to our forward-thinking and fast-evolving professional status.
The original policy plan for non-medical prescribing dates back to 2000. Since 2006 appropriately qualified nurses have been able to prescribe a range of drugs from the British National Formulary (depending on the sphere of competence of the individual practitioner) and now includes unlicensed and controlled drugs (there are a few exceptions). At the University of Hull we offer a full range of prescribing courses for NMC registrants as well as pharmacists and some allied health professionals.

International Nurses Day #2 FoNS celebrate International Nurses Day 2017 with mini-films showcasing the many and varied faces of nursing
To celebrate International Nurses Day, FoNS has produced two short films to showcase what makes nursing such a satisfying career, and gives an amazing insight into the breadth of nursing careers that are available.
May 12, 2017 is International Nurses Day #IND2017 and will be celebrated around the world as the 197th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. This year International Nurses Day offers all nurses a new opportunity to honor the spirit of Florence Nightingale. She is known for how she bravely created innovations that improved quality of care and advanced the science of the nursing profession. On this special day, my hope is that all nurses will take some time to reflect on the impact the nursing profession has had - and continues to have every single day and in every part of the world. From intensive care units to clinics, from schools to the community, nurses are taking action that promotes the health and well-being of the world’s people.
This year make your International Nurses Day a time to celebrate and take pride in the value of your work - and the work of all nurses. Nursing innovation and courage has led to many great improvements in health care. Today there are even more opportunities for nurses to take action. I celebrate each nurse and honor you for your work which promotes quality health care and increases access to essential health resources. Thank you for your commitment to the nursing profession.

HUU Student Led Teaching Awards 2017
'And the winner of the overall outstanding achievement award is......'
Monday, 8 May 2017
The Faculty of Health and Social Work Athena SWAN committee are pleased to announce the school have been successful in achieving our bronze award. The Athana SWAN charter recognises commitment to gender equality in academic institutions including professional/support roles, academics and students. It is worth also mentioning that the charter focuses also on interconnected nature of gender with other of our characteristics (e.g. ethnicity, disability). The focus of the bronze award is analysis of huge amounts of data and making subsequent pledges/action plans to improve equality in our school. Implementation of the action plan has begun. If anyone is interested in joining the committee you would be made very welcome and the diversity of the work means there is something for everyone to enjoy and achieve. Contact Judith Dyson (J.Dyson@hull.ac.uk) for more details. We have a very interesting year ahead! The following two links give a couple of examples of work the team are doing, but there is a lot more happening and more to come:

the annual action-packed interactive Hull weekend with VR/gaming/cosplay/NERF/live music and FREE SOFT DRINKS & BISCUITS! This year it is dedicated to nurse Liz Sneddon who died recently.
This year's convention will be dedicated to the memory of Liz Sneddon. Liz recently lost her battle with cancer (her fourth battle in 20 years) and will always be remembered by the team for her energy, her beaming smile and the look of pride as her nephew David (famous E:D Commander Selezen Lake and creator of the much anticipated Elite: Encounters RPG) had his hair shaved off live at the event to support her charity, Marie Curie. This was at FantastiCon back in 2015.
