Remote and Rural Placement

I am really proud of my Stage 2 Hons Nursing Student, Tara Tully, who lifted many of our post festive spirits with this highly positive, well written blog sharing her experiences of a remote and rural clinical placement on her course. Tara, used her own initiative to get her experiences published, which highlights the diversity of learning opportunities a nursing course offers, well done!

The School series of Research Seminars

The School series of Research Seminars for the autumn semester is well underway and last month a very engaging session was delivered by lecturer Jill Will.  Jill carried out a small study about care home residents keeping and updating their own records for her MSc project, and this was presented in the session.  She also introduced a new study she and others in the School will begin soon on staff resilience in the care home setting.  This study has received funding from NHS Grampian Endowments.  The care home sector is currently under researched and we feel it is an area in which more studies can be carried out to inform practice and enhance care.

Jill’s seminar is entitled ‘Research in the care home setting: Giving residents and staff a voice.’  It can be viewed by clicking here:
