Hosted by RCN History of Nursing Society
This seminar will present findings of how ‘story-telling’ can expose the long-term impact on nurses who cared for patients injured by bombs and bullets.
During the Northern Ireland conflict (1969-98), 3,725 people were killed and 47,000 injured. Nurses played a key role in caring for the casualties of bombings and shootings. They delivered care in hospital and community settings and were not immune to having family members injured or killed. Their experiences can inform current practitioners exposed to the injuries of violent trauma and show the therapuetic influence of sharing a common narrative.
