We all imagine that everyone understands what nurses do, the skills we have, the difference we make and the pressures we work under.  We need to ask ourselves why we make this assumption.  Not many nurses operate politically (small p).  Its often seen as a bit "dirty" but it isn't. Nor is it scary.  All of us have an MP, chances are they have a view of nursing based on the exact myths/images that this project is aiming to dispel. If each MP saw a nurse in their surgery everytime they had one...

My idea is that NHS managers, particularly those that are responsible for commissioning healthcare services, experience the 'front line' now and again.  I'm a commissioning manager and don't believe that I could effectively commission services without now and again experiencing first hand healthcare delivery and practice in the care environment.  This includes talking to nurses and other healthcare staff and talking to patients - and not necessarily in a formal 'engagement and involvement'...

Give nurses and midwives the tools and technology needed to provide more person centred, effective care. For example, skype and facetime to enable them to utilize the possibilities of remote calls and telehealth. Phones and tablets that support this technology. Access to social media and YouTube etc (this is often blocked but useful information and relationships can be found there). Please add your story below:

I have been so inspired this week by Tessa Jowell, the key message that stood out to me was how patients create their support networks to help and learn from each other to live with cancer.  So as healthcare staff how do we support each other to work in healthcare? Family support networks are not the same now and 12 hrs shifts impact our social support networks. My idea which needs help to develop is creating communities or networks to support current staff and then inspire news staff....
