End of Life Care

Watch the video of the breakfast event, Demonstrating the value of nurse-led innovations in End of Life Care, which took place on 27 April 2016

I was a novice with this type of thinking before the programme. It has educated me and enabled me to view things from a different perspective. I can now describe my service and role in economic terms which is powerful.

These three nurses show just how varied, complex and skilled nursing is today. 

Nursing staff work in diverse settings - in hospitals, communities, the workplace and the classroom - and use their expertise to adapt their skills to offer the best care and support to their patients.

Watch this film to take a look at what modern nursing is like today.
