I've heard recently on the news that some people aren't getting their smear test done because of anxieties about their body image. I can absolutely relate to this as I am one of those people that felt humiliated and embarrassed with the thought of getting me female bits out for someone. It wasn't until recently that I've had the confidence to do it and as silly as its sounds, it's because I had to have an examination of my womb. If I had avoided that too like I did with the smear test I...

If someone is talking, whether it be making a suggestion or within a discussion regarding decisions being made, it is important to demonstrate active listening. This alone can reassure the person that what they are saying is important and that they are being listened to and heard. Sometimes it may be perceived that ones voice isn't being taken into account within the decision making process. Providing feedback can support others in feeling their input is valid. If a decision isn't...

We often talk about our experiences in nursing, how about the people we care for and their carers (friends and family)? I interviewed somone recently that said he wanted to get into nursing because of a positive experience had had with nursing staff when a family member was being nursed. He said he wanted to be a person making that difference to someone -  that's carers feedback right there.  Patients experience is really important as is their voice. A person I cared for for many years...

Today I worked with a team of people to facilitate a values based assessment centre (interviews) for band 2 apprentiships (health care assistants) and RMN (registered mental health nurse).   The assessors (interviewers) consisted of a variety of staff, such included associate practitioners, senior health care assistants, RMN, managers, occupational therapy, clinical team leaders, training facilitators, service users, human recourses and project leads.               I was so proud of what...

R E D - T A P E, we all come accross red tape in some shape or form for one reason or another, and when coming accross the dreaded red tape we (albeit not everyone) are filled with  frustration because we are told we can't do something because of this or that. sometimes we feel like saying well what can we actually do, there is red tape all over.   Well I think that there is something we can do about the R E D - T A P E, and that's ourselves in thinking out of the box, be creative,...

I work on a mental health ward in forensic psychiatry and have found that in some areas there is a documentation duplication overload. For example, when I take all 15 service users physical observations (blood pressure, weight, temperature, blood sugars if relevant, work out their early warning signs, pulse, o2sats) which is all manual as we don't have one of those fabulous machines that does everything all at once (with the exception of the electronic blood pressure machine to be honest I...

It makes such a difference to how a person feels because of how you are on interaction no matter how brief. I've been to the doctors one occasion and left feeling deflated as he didn't appear to be interested in what I was saying and barely gave me eyecontact. Me being me I wanted to reflect on this and inject some positivity into the experience.  I laughed at myself as I pondered if he was socially inadequate as I recall his body language being cold and turned away from me. I rememberd...

Mental health and physical health fit hand in hand. Both have an impact on an individual's health and wellbeing. Here in forensic mental health nursing we are working in partnership with others to continually improve the care we are providing. We have learnt that mental health services isn't solely about mental health but physical health too. Of course we don't have equipment like general hospitals do (an MRI machine for example) but we are trained in the basics of physiological...

The Care Certificate is a 12 week course for new and existing health care assistants accross NHS England. This is but a scratch of what training is provided by the trust finits employee.

I am thankful to be a part of a team of staff that facilitate values based assessment centres. For those of you that are unfamiliar with assessment centres they are interview days. It's not an interview where you sit in a room for 20 minutes and get asked a few questions, it's a half day assessment where people are assessed on their values. There are various sections to the day that allow assessors to assess people on their values. Yes kniwladge and experience is good and having an insight...

To inspire do we not need to invoke the want and need in others to become what they see? By nurses demonstrating compassion, care and kindness may alone inspire others. So smile when someone comes accross your path, be honest and comforting and one day they may wish to be the person you were to them to others. Describe your story ...

A few colleagues of mine visited schools in the area to talk about mental health nursing, what they do within their job role and what it means to be a mental health nurse. The feedback recieved was a positive one, they were able to talk candidly about mental health and by doing so helped reduce stigma. So many children and young adults are living with mental health issues and isn't spoken about as they may feel embarrassed and or confused - talking with them about mental health can help...

We have many ways of demonstrating gratitude, thanks, a pat on the back where I work and it comes in many forms which is fab. Here's a few examples: Thank you cards that can be typed onto or written on. Thanks to the fabulous comms team who designed a great template that is easily accessible for all. I recieved one for helping out at a 'EYUP', which is a charity associated with the Trust. Lovely gesture it was. As well as verbally, a mention in comms, Trust intranet, headlines and email....

I work on a mental health ward in forensic psychiatry. I've worked in forensics specifically for 10years and as each day comes with its challanges so does its breakthroughs. Many times over the years nurses felt as though they do not have a voice, but on the contrary we absolutely do. How are our voices heard and listened to? By talking of course. I'm thankful to be a part of a culture that promotes inclusivity, whether that be a doctor,  service user, carer or nurse. To help those...

Bio Hello my name is Laura, career wise I've worked in nursing on and off for the past 16 years. The areas varying from older people's services, vulnerable children, end of life care, vulnerable adults amongst other areas. I currently work in forensic mental health nursing on an all male inpatient ward and have been doing this for over 10 years and I'm absolutely loving it. In addition to this I do innovation and development work including leading in different areas such as staff wellbeing for low secure mental health service, I'm a Care Certificate assessor and work with some awesome people in leading in carers involvement, physical health, least restrictive practive. Alsorts really, love the diversity or challenges and passionate about doing what I can in different areas to improve the service and care provided. Inbetween the years working in nursing I worked in bars (primarily to fund the voluntary work that I did at the time - learnt many transferrable skills from the bars believe it or not), in a call centre and a clothes shop, all that were unrewarding as my passion has always been in nursing, that's where my heart is. I love to help others, whether it's patients, friends, family, colleagues etc, love to see people progress and be the best they can be, love a good steak and potato pie and love a bit of opera too, especially Andrea Boccelli, amazing singer. I'll leave it at this for now or it will turn into an autobiography : )
