CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)-Plans for the next academic year.
The teaching staff are now beginning to return to the School to resume their academic activities. They are working at a pace to change the way we deliver our courses. Moving forward, we will be using blended and e-learning methods. We aim to roll out the modules, which were postponed during the initial stages of COVID-19, in a phased approach, starting in September 2020, over an eight-month period. This is in line with Health Education England (HEE) who have proposed an extension to the education contract period. This is to allow time for the recovery of commissions that were postponed due to the pandemic.
As you will recognise because of COVID-19, plans are constantly changing so we will, as the situation evolves, endeavour to keep you informed. The health and wellbeing of our staff and students are our absolute priority.
If you do have any questions or concerns, please refer to our Student Q&A page or contact us at Student Support Services for more information.
The International Council of Nurses theme for this year's International Nurses Day was Nurses: A Voice to Lead, Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The aim of the theme was to raise awareness: firstly among the nursing profession of what the goals are and why they matter; and secondly, among the population, governments and other decision-makers, of the contributions nurses are making to achieve the goals.
International Nurses Day highlights the amazing work that nurses around the world are doing to improve access to health care, to educate populations, to address poverty, nutrition, clean energy, inequality, sustainability, innovation and justice.
If you have been inspired to think about developing your skills to support the goals, The Royal Marsden School offers a range of courses and modules that will equip you in leading change in your area.
Its Deconstructing Contemporary Practice module equips clinical practitioners with the skills to improve and develop clinical services to enhance patient experience and clinical outcomes. The module explores the dynamic, evolving nature of clinical practice in the UK.
Alternatively, its Advanced Communication Skills Training module is relevant to all senior health and social care professionals working primarily in the field of cancer. It will increase your awareness of your own communication skills while exploring strategies to improve quality communication.
