Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has recruited nurses from overseas from within and outside the European economic area. This article describes an innovative recruitment initiative that has focused on nurses who trained overseas and are living and working in the local community, but cannot work in a registered nurse role without financial and practical support. It provides an overview of the robust selection processes used, which are in line with the Nursing and Midwifery Council registration requirements, and the stepwise employment offer made to successful applicants...

Quality is complex and difficult to define, and institutions and organisations often have their own definitions, measurements and assurance processes. The Care Excellence Framework (CEF), developed and used at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, is a unique, integrated framework of measurement, clinical observation, patient and staff interviews and benchmarking. It also has an internal accreditation system that provides assurance from ward to board based on the five Care Quality Commission (CQC) domains and reflects CQC standards...

In the UK, mentors of pre-registration nurses must achieve the stage 2 outcomes of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (2008) standards to support learning and assessment in practice. Approval for new standards for student supervision and assessment was granted at the NMC meeting in March 2018 ( NMC 2018a ). The introduction of the new standards will see the dissolution of mentorship and the emergence of new roles to support students in academic and practice environments. This article gives an overview of these standards and, drawing on the recommendations from a collaborative event hosted by NHS Education for Scotland and some of the findings from a rapid literature review undertaken for that event, provides nurse managers with information to help inform their discussions as they work in partnership with approved education institution colleagues to realise, support and sustain the roles outlined in the new standards...

Part one of this six-part continuing professional development series considered the role of nurse managers in supporting reflection for professional learning. It was aimed at enabling readers to consider critically the role of reflection in nursing and relate this to the Nursing and Midwifery Council's professional requirements. Part two explores approaches to and benefits of reflection for self-development. The notion of self-development may seem removed from professional practice and nurse leadership but the traits that demonstrate who we are, how we learn, how we act and how we influence are related to and transferable from self to professional self...

The challenging nature of change is well documented and adequate preparation before implementing a change initiative is critical to reducing resistance and increasing its chances of success. This article describes a service review conducted in preparation for possible change and improvement at an internationally ranked school of nursing and midwifery in an Irish tertiary education institution. The purpose of the review was to examine organisational structures and work activities, including pressures facing the administrative team that supports the school, and to establish whether operations were fit for purpose and capable of continuing to support the international ranking...

GPs' workload has increased significantly in recent years affecting their ability to provide high-quality services, and consequently there is increasing focus on nurses to provide a solution. There is little evidence of how advanced nurse practitioners (ANPs) experience their role in out of hours (OOH) services, and it is important to understand their perceptions of this and the challenges they may face in supporting service development and improvement. This article evaluates the role and experiences of ANPs working in an OOH urgent primary care service and identifies important factors that affect their roles...

Cara Large, Matthew Aldridge
Recognising patient deterioration is a vital nursing role. Observation based on vital signs and early warning scores are mandatory for all adult patients in acute hospital care and are the first steps in identifying deterioration. However, they rely on users' understanding of the significance of the results they find and their ability to escalate to senior colleagues if necessary. This article examines the non-technical skills nurses require to recognise and escalate patient deterioration. Itexplores and analyses the literature on this topic and suggests there is a need for greater focus on situational awareness in nurse training and in healthcare in general, as this is linked to improved patient safety...

Sara Morgan
Simulation has been introduced in recent years into international nursing curricula. Many educational establishments have developed simulation centres that resemble the ward settings nursing students will be exposed to so that they can use the same equipment as they will in clinical practice. This is referred to as high fidelity simulation training (HFST). This article reflects on an example of a multidisciplinary HFST scenario in the context of the assessment and accountability and learning domains of the Nursing and Midwifery Council standards...

Nurses' decisions about their intent to remain in the workforce are based on various factors. A healthy work environment in which work done well is recognised and appreciated contributes to nurses' satisfaction and better patient outcomes. This article examines the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses framework for a healthy work environment, focusing on standards for meaningful recognition. Reflective practice, which provides a self-analytical approach to appreciate and value one's work, is viewed as self-recognition...

This article shows how simulation can be modified and adapted to benefit higher education institutions (HEIs) in a variety of situations. These situations can involve the engagement of service users (SUs) and moulage, or application of make-up to simulate clinical presentations, to ensure skill enhancement, ultimately to support and empower students so they can achieve their potential. This article describes a unique collaboration between staff at an HEI and SUs, who have worked together in simulation activities...

An increased number of emergency secondary care surgical admissions has intensified the challenge of meeting acute care patients' needs, while not interrupting elective admissions. Aneurin Bevan University Health Board is striving to work differently, with the introduction of an innovative nurse practitioner-led virtual inpatient (VIP) surgical service. VIP is designed to manage emergency patients safely, effectively and in a timely manner, enabling them to return home while waiting for investigations. This article describes the service and outlines the main outcomes, which include increasing the number of surgical emergency patients managed as VIPs, shortening VIP stays, providing more timely access to investigations and saving money for the health board...

REVIEW
Carol Brindley
Many healthcare, social care and voluntary agency employees are carers at work and at home, a phenomenon referred to as double-duty caregiving. Using meta-ethnography, this article provides a synthesis of qualitative research by analysing the original words of the interviewees. A linguistic and metaphoric overview provides a deeper, richer picture of the experience of double-duty caring, revealing the sacrifices associated with being a carer at home while employed in a healthcare system, and the paradoxical effects of holding a position in both worlds simultaneously...

This paper outlines why experienced supervisors at a London healthcare provider received skills training so they could offer safeguarding supervision to front-line colleagues with case management responsibilities for vulnerable children and young people. It examines how supervisors use the main functions of supervision and a cycle of reflection in clinical practice with supervisees. As well as the professional issues encountered by supervisors in relation to the benefits, the challenges of providing supervision and the action required to make safeguarding supervision a part of the organisational culture are also explored...

Managing sickness and absenteeism in the workplace is challenging, and nurse managers must consider their various causes so they can implement effective management strategies. It is also vital to consider the factors that influence absenteeism and turnover among newly graduated registered nurses (RNs), whose retention can help to address staff shortages. This article describes a literature review that aimed to identify the potential causes of sickness absence in newly graduated RNs. It also discusses strategies that nurse managers can use to retain and maintain their workforce...

There are several interlocking elements integral to the delivery of safe patient care, including clinical governance, efficient communication, teamwork, risk assessment, inter-professional education and effective leadership. Each element can be challenging to understand, develop, or act on, but it is essential that nurses use these as opportunities to ensure their specialty or service delivers safe and high-quality care. This article discusses each of these elements and its relationship to quality patient care, with specific reference to the role of children's nurses...
