‘The Nursing Workforce in Wales 2020’, published by the Royal College of Nursing Wales, is designed to provide a statistical overview of the strengths and vulnerabilities of the current nursing workforce in Wales.
In the last of the RCN2020 series of events, members will debate the effects of unpredictable shift patterns on the nursing workforce and the impact on patient safety.
Ten-percent of people in Wales (300,000) are digitally excluded – which means being unable to use devices such as computers, smartphones and having no access to internet WIFI and broadband. This RCN2020 debate asks the RCN to consider the implications of digital exclusion and develop a strategy to minimise its effects.
As RCN2020 debate explores whether the Royal College of Nursing should develop a strategy to promote the unique role of registered nurses in care homes, RCN Wales has been working with members on care home issues.
RCN Wales responds to the launch of ‘A Healthier Wales: Our Workforce Strategy for Health and Social Care’.
The safety and health of the people in Wales is the highest priority for RCN Wales. Unfortunately, the cases have been rising over the past few weeks. Our nursing professionals are working so hard, exhausted, stressed and anxious about caring for a big increase in patients as case levels rise.
Richard Desir RN MA BSc (Hons) DipN DMS, Director of Nursing, talks about the importance of celebrating Black History Month, diversity in nursing and why Wales us such a great place to live and work.
In Wales, approximately 33,000 people currently die each year, and it is estimated that 75% of these - 24,750 patients - will require either end of life or palliative care at some level. Due to an unacceptable variance in the availability of services and professional expertise available to patients, some people are experiencing poor care at a time when they and their families need it to be at its best.
The Royal College of Nursing in Wales today highlights the impact of problematic COVID-19 testing as the numbers of cases continue to rise across the nation.
