Dangerous liaisons? The myth of mental illness and risk The myth of the mentally ill as dangerous and menacing persists despite evidence to the contrary. Speaker Professor Patrick Callaghan (Professor of Mental Health Nursing, School of Health Sciences and Professorial Fellow of the Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham) will argue that it is the often unquestioned acceptance of the effectiveness of risk assessment and the unconscious bias that emerges from this narrative that poses the biggest risk.

  • New nursing apprentice role announced

    Posted in News on Dec 02, 2016

    Aspiring nurses can soon enrol on a new on-the-job apprenticeship role, the government says. From September 2017, up to 1,000 NHS staff will be able to take up the training without having to go down the conventional university route to get a nursing degree. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt says it complements the nursing associate role announced a year ago. Both initiatives aim to offer flexible routes into nursing in England. They might also give students an affordable way to train, since ministers plan to scrap student bursaries for nurses in September 2017. Student nurses at university are cur...

  • Mitie withdraws from healthcare as it issues second profit warning

    Posted in News on Nov 28, 2016

    Outsourcing group’s shares fall 18% in early trading as £128m write-off drives it to £100m pre-tax loss for half-year Lady McGregor-Smith, Mitie chief executive, announced soon after the first profit warning that she would step down. Mitie has published its second profit warning in two months after the outsourcing company’s customers continued to reduce spending due to rising costs and economic uncertainty. The company also said it would withdraw from its healthcare business, which provides home care for the elderly. The £128m cost of writing off the business drove Mitie to a £100m pre-tax lo...

  • NHS partners with Google's DeepMind AI to improve healthcare

    Posted in News on Nov 24, 2016

    The partnership between NHS and Google's DeepMind AI has raised privacy concerns regarding patient data. Google has revealed that its AI engine Deep Mind is currently using NHS data to aid doctors and health care professionals diagnose patients, which has raised concerns over patient privacy. The company's AI has been employed by doctors at the Royal Free Hospital in London, who claim that the technology can help free up over half a million hours per year spent on paperwork and the extra time could be allotted to treating patients. DeepMind is used at the hospital to send alerts to doctors wh...

  • Why the male 'pill' is still so hard to swallow

    Posted in News on Nov 08, 2016

    A recent study looking at the effectiveness of a male contraceptive injection was abandoned after the men taking part reported increased incidences of acne (nearly half), mood disorders (over a fifth) and raised libido (over a third). In fact, there were 320 men in the study – and a total of 1,491 adverse events were reported. For those overseeing the trial these side effects were viewed as being more significant than the fact that the contraceptive injection appeared to work well in reducing the production of sperm – and the evidence does appear to support their concerns? Nevertheless, many...

  • How To Answer The Most Common Nursing Interview Questions

    Posted in Uncategorized on Oct 19, 2016

    To be perfectly blunt, interviews can be rather nerve-wracking because a lot is at stake. After all, you really want to be considered for this available position, and you only have one chance to make a good first impression on the interviewer. Another aspect that adds to the stressful nature of the interview process is the fact that you are most likely competing with many other applicants for that prized job opening. Based on our candidate experiences, the vast majority of the most common nursing interview questions have remained constant and unchanged over the handful of years that I have be...

  • New 'nursing associate' role announced

    Posted in News on Oct 12, 2016

    Plans to create 2,000 "nursing associate" roles across England have been announced by health officials. The first 1,000 nursing associates, who will deliver "hands-on" care for patients, are due to start training at 11 tests sites from December, Health Education England (HEE) said. Following "huge interest" in the role from hospitals and other parts of the health sector, a second wave of training places will follow, HEE said. Union Unison has previously said the new roles should not be used "as a cheap way to replace registered nurses". But HEE said the role will bridge the gap between healt...

  • Nobel prize in medicine awarded

    Posted in News on Oct 04, 2016

    The Nobel prize in medicine has been awarded to a Japanese cell biologist for discoveries on how cells break down and recycle their own components. Yoshinori Ohsumi, 71, will receive the prestigious 8m Swedish krona (£718,000) award for uncovering “mechanisms for autophagy”, a fundamental process in cells that scientists believe can be harnessed to fight cancer and dementia. Autophagy is the body’s internal recycling programme - scrap cell components are captured and the useful parts are stripped out to generate energy or build new cells. The process is crucial for preventing cancerous growths...
