The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International 

Announces the Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing 

International nurse leaders convene in Basel, Switzerland, to advance global health

INDIANAPOLIS  The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) announces the creation of the Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing (GAPFON)The inaugural meeting of GAPFON — a panel of international nurse leaders — convened to establish a global voice and vision for the future of nursing that will advance global health. The panel is chaired by Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing Dean Emerita and Professor Dr. Martha N. Hill.

“GAPFON will be a catalyst to stimulate partnerships and collaborations to advance global health outcomes. I am excited and honored to chair this initiative and look forward to working with nurses, other health professionals, and key stakeholders who are committed to improving global health domestically and internationally,” said Dr. Hill.

The initial GAPFON meeting  an intense three-day high-level gathering that facilitated discussion to identify and discuss strategies to positively influence global health — took place in Basel, Switzerland, 27-29 March 2014. Key issues identified include the need for reform, advocacy, and innovations inleadership, policy, practice, education, and work environments.

“It is imperative that global nurse leaders work together to develop a unified voice and vision for the future of nursing worldwide,” said STTI President Dr. Hester C. Klopper. “The Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing will be a vehicle for thought leaders to share information, develop and influence policy, and advance this profession to influence global health.”

GAPFON will hold a series of regional meetings of leaders from key stakeholder groups, including representatives from multiple sectors around the globe, to obtain knowledge and social, economic, cultural, and political insight related to issues determined at this inaugural meeting. Data from these meetings will provide the basis for an action plan including policy implications.

Panel member Dr. John Daly said, “The advisory panel and its agenda provide an unprecedented opportunity for global nursing leadership to make major strides in contributing to advances in global health.”

During the past decade, STTI, which holds special consultative status with the United NationsECOSOC (Economic and Social Council), has assumed an increasingly global role in advancing world health and promoting the nursing profession. The creation of GAPFON represents a major advance in establishing strategic directions for improving global healthHaving taken the initiative to host the inaugural meeting and future regional meetings, STTI is laying the foundation for GAPFON to continue in the future as a sustainable advisory entity.  

Advisor to Her Royal Highness Princess Muna El Hussein — the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s)Patron for Nursing Midwifery — and Senator, the Kingdom of Jordan, Dr. Rowaida Al-Ma’aitahstates, “I believe the time is right for a sharper vision and collective voice for nurses and midwives all over the world to influence the global health agenda. GAPFON is a powerful vehicle for paving the future of nurses’ influence in achieving global health outcomes.

Establishment of the GAPFON meets STTI’s mission to advance world health, and the theme of STTI President Dr. Hester Klopper’s call to action, “Lead Globally, Transform Regionally, Serve Locally.”

Research Focus: The A.P.R.I.L. scale

Researchers at the University of Hull's Faculty of Health and Social Care have made a breakthrough in developing an instrument to assess nurses’ contribution to the NHS. The April Scale, as it is known, was inspired by an approach known as vernacular modelling.  Dr Peter Draper explains 'We noticed that in everyday life, people rate performance by relating it to commonly accepted standards. For example, the size of a place might be expressed in relation to the size of Wales. Alternatively the performance of a football team could be expressed relative to that expected of Doncaster Rovers on a wet Wednesday evening.'
A typical nurse

The April Scale results from work to find a similar way of defining and measuring nursing work. The scale consists of three sub scales, respectively measuring the size of the territory a nurse is capable of covering on foot in a month, an estimate of his or her intelligence, and the likelihood in any given year that he or she will pack in nursing for a job in a supermarket.

The research team has found a way of indirectly estimating the size of territory a nurse is able to cover without the need for direct measurement. Professor Roger Watson explains 'Whilst walking about the campus we have often noticed that district nurses' calf muscles are more well developed than those of other health professionals, due entirely to the miles they put in walking round the Bransholme estate. We realised that the circumference of the calf muscle is directly proportional to the distance a nurse is able to travel, and this led to the development of the Bransholme Index.'
Professor Roger Watson

The second sub scale is an estimate of intelligence. Intelligence is traditionally measured by the IBM 2 (Insensate Building Materials) test which expresses intelligence relative to two short planks, a widely accepted standard of mediocrity, although some researchers have achieved equally good results with the IMB 1, which relates intelligence to a single brick. Dr Peter Draper explains that the advent of graduate nursing meant a new approach was required.  'We know that nurses are amongst the smartest members of the workforce, and the smartest of all are those educated at the University of Hull'. The breakthrough came when the team realised that nurses' intelligence is directly proportional to the distance between their Alma Mater and the Hull campus.
Dr Peter Draper

The final subscale proved the trickiest of all. Large numbers of the profession are reported to be leaving for jobs in the retail food industry, and the team needed to find a way of estimating the likelihood that a nurse will prefer pushing a shopping trolley to a medicines trolley. This led to the development of the Lidl index. Blindfold nurses are led to a succession of trolleys where trolley behaviour is measured. Those that tend to put things in to the trolley are deemed latent shoppers, and are likely to end up in a supermarket, whereas these who naturally dispense things out of the trolley are much more likely to stay in the profession.

The researchers' current priority is to combine the sub scales (Area, Intelligence, and Lidl) into a single measure. The prototype of APRIL 1 is released this morning.

"Since the introduction of the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), GPs have been incentivised to keep a register of patients diagnosed with heart failure (HF). Such registers are only effective if they are audited regularly, since they are likely to contain errors and omissions. GRASP-HF is a new tool designed to help busy practices achieve a systematic approach to the identification, diagnosis and management of patients with HF."

Nicola Credland's Uganda blog - entry 7

Tomorrow I am teaching BLS to anyone who comes to the ICU. The staff have never done this before so it should be great to teach. 
The picture I have attached today is the recipe for naso-gastric feed. The patient’s family provide the ingredients, make and administer this, not the nursing staff.  Mukene are tiny silver fish. All of the ingredients are placed in a bowl and mashed together to make a liquid and then filtered through a strainer before giving it via a NG tube.

Nicola Credland's Uganda blog - entry 6

I spent today teaching airway management, intubation and invasive ventilation to the nursing students. Again they are so excited to learn. I took some airway equipment with me from the UK which I showed in class. Most of the students have never seen these items before, or had but did not know what they were for. They were even taking pictures of the ET tubes and LMA’s so they remembered them in the future. They are so bright. The pathophysiology of invasive ventilation is not easy but they asked appropriate questions and got to grips with some complicated concepts (remember most these students have never seen a patient on a ventilator). The sessions were an absolute pleasure to teach although the power went off half way through so I had to revert to blackboard and chalk!  I am very passionate about my subject and to teach students with equal (if not more) passion and enthusiasm is infectious! I had a fantastic time. 
The students in the picture are the nursing students to whom I have been teaching critical care.

Nicola Credland's Uganda blog - entry 5

I have had another eventful day spent mostly  on ICU teaching and working with students, nursing and medical staff. I taught ABCDE assessment and management of airway obstruction. The doctors were equally as excited about learning this as the nurses. I also showed the nursing staff how and why to document vital signs in the ICU observation chart. 
I watched a dressing change for a grade 4 pressure ulcer. The patient had been on ICU following a motorcycle (boda boda) accident. He had a GCS of 7/15. The patients’ family undertake all personal care with no direction from the nursing staff. This patient had a huge sore to his right hip approximately 25cmx20cm and down to the bone which the doctor scrubbed with a scrubbing brush and then soaked with non sterile gauze and hydrogen peroxide. Finally he packed it with vinegar soaked gauze and non sterile dressing!  All of this with no analgesia.

Nicola Credland's Uganda blog - entry 4

I am in the University office writing this. There has been no internet access all day which is common here although very frustrating. We forget how much we rely on such technology. Apparently we possibly won’t have electricity over the weekend - it tends to be off Friday night, Saturday and Sunday! I can only imagine how difficult working in these conditions day in day out must be. I have just finished a one-to-one teaching session with Harriet Nalubega. She is a certificate nurse (educated to GCSE level) who works on ICU. She is often the only nurse on duty in ICU (irrespective of the number of patients) with no academic ICU training and very limited clinical experience. She wanted to learn about cardiac conduction and how to read basic rhythm strips. To say I was impressed was an understatement - she was amazing! Within two hours she was accurately diagnosing VF, VT, AF, PVCs and heart blocks and could explain what was happening in the heart for each one. She is possibly the brightest student I have ever met. She is currently working to pay for her younger sisters’ schooling. She then has to do her diploma (the same as our A levels) before she can apply to do her nurse training. She may never be able to afford the £500 per year fees. If I had a spare £2k I would gladly give her it. However, I can give her my time while I am here so we have loads of teaching booked for next week - including a basic life support session for all ICU staff which non of them have ever done.
As it is Friday and the start of the weekend I was taken out for a few beers by some of the other lecturers. Many of them are from the American Peace Corps. We are all meeting up for a BBQ on Sunday so its not all work ;) Queen Elizabeth National Park safari tomorrow so an early 5am start - very excited!

Local MP Diana Johnson visits the Faculty

We were delighted to welcome Diana Johnson MP (Hull North) who visited the Faculty on 7 March 2014 to gain an insight into the education of health professionals. This provided an opportunity to explore the challenges faced by students preparing for a career in the health service within higher education and for the Faculty supporting them - through discussion with the Dean, Professor Steven Ersser, Professor Kate Galvin, Professor of Nursing Practice and Mrs Deborah Robinson, Director of Pre-qualifying Studies.  Diana met with students from the Adult Nursing, Operating Department Practitioner, Learning Disability, Mental Health and Child Health fields. In providing feedback Diana indicated that she found the students engaging and vocal on their views about their education and the health service. Diana was then given a tour of the Centre for Clinical Skills by Dr Carol Purcell, Academic Lead, and Janice Nolan, Clinical Skills Support Assistant.

Nicola Credland's Uganda diary - entry 3

What an amazing day (again). Spent the morning in the emergency department.?  There is no ABCDE assessment, no triage, no prioritisation, no equipment, no drugs, extremely limited oxygen supply, no clean water, no vital signs equipment, a broken X-ray machine, no ECG machine and access to a CT scanner only for those who can afford it. Unconscious patients are left on the floor. They have one crash trolley for the entire hospital! During the morning I saw four serious traffic accidents, an overdose of rat poison, a machete attack and numerous extremely unwell patients all unconscious - apparently this was quite a steady shift. It tested my assessment skills to the limit and I loved every minute of it. 
In the afternoon I was teaching: arterial blood gas analysis and pulmonary embolism (no mean feat when the staff have no access to oxygen). The students were amazing. They do all of their pathophysiology training with the medical students so their knowledge is excellent. They were a pleasure to teach - excited and eager to learn, enthusiastic and asking questions constantly. They are the most polite and unassuming students I have ever met. They are not interested in getting a first class degree, they simply want to do their very best, make the tutors proud of them and care for the patients in the best way they can - how refreshing. One student got 90% in her mid-term exams and she came to the office to find out how she could have improved. When you consider the lack of clinical experiences available to them it is astounding what they know and how they cope!

Annual Report extract - Higher Education Academy Fellowships

Peter Draper, Senior Lecturer
Rev Dr Peter Draper

Excellence in teaching is at the heart of the Faculty’s mission, and this year several members of our staff have received significant recognition from the Higher Education Academy (HEA) through the award of HEA fellowships and other accolades.

The HEA has recognized Parveen Ali, Nicola Credland, Judith Dyson, Paula Gawthorpe, Jeanette MacNaught and Helen Sisson as Fellows. To achieve fellowship, academics must show that they are skilled teachers who are knowledgeable about their subject material and contemporary approaches to teaching and that their teaching is underpinned by evidence and reflects professional values. This cluster of practice, knowledge and values is known as the UK Professional Standards Framework.  Academics can be awarded fellowship by successfully completing an accredited programme or by producing evidence which is peer-reviewed by senior academics.  Thus Fellowship of the HEA is a significant professional achievement.

Senior Fellowship of the HEA can be awarded to experienced academics who have shown significant leadership in their learning and teaching practice.  One member of our staff was successful in gaining a Senior Fellowship this year – congratulations to Jennifer Loke.

Every year the HEA invites universities to nominate academic staff to become National Teaching Fellows (NTF).  The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme is a highly competitive and prestigious national competition in which up to 55 awards are made in recognition of individual excellence.  This year the university nominated Peter Draper, Senior Lecturer in Nursing, for the award.  Peter was successful, and received his certificate in a ceremony in London.

This level of success is the result of a great deal of hard work.  The FHSC regularly runs staff development events with a focus on learning and teaching.  This year, two leading nurse educators, Professor Janet Hargreaves (University of Huddersfield) and Professor Philip Keeley (University of Manchester) delivered seminars on learning and teaching topics, and the faculty has held several learning and teaching forums jointly facilitated by leading educators from other disciplines.  Peter Draper has also held workshops to help colleagues prepare their submissions for HEA recognition.

The award of a fellowship of the Higher Education Academy at any level is valuable because it is the outcome of a process of peer review of performance against objective standards.  The Student Led Teaching Awards are recognized by the National Union of Students and the Higher Education Academy, and this year Mike Parker, Lecturer in clinical nursing, received the Inspiring Teacher of the Year Award.  This award recognizes his ability to make content interesting and relevant, and a teaching approach with a transformative impact on the student experience and a passion for good teaching that motivates students to perform academically at their full potential.
