Wendy Sinclair (@wlasinclair) is a lecturer in childrens nursing at Salford University and has been there for the last eight years. She started using Twitter about a year ago as a way of engaging the Salford Nursing Students. Also to see how they could use social media in both a professional and social capacity. She is also working towards a PhD in Social Media and Professional Conduct.
An interesting discussion is had by us all about the benefits of social media when used well and the empowering of their students. This is a model that others should follow.
I also want to point out a conference which is happening in Coventry in July. This is the 3rd National Advanced Practitioner conference. You can click on the image below for a link to the application form.
This is not an expensive day and it would be great to be able to network with other practitioners. I am pushing people to go from my trust, so lets all the do the same. See if we can overwhelm them with interest. I am hoping that I will be able to let you all know the format of the day by the 11th May. So watch out for my tweets!
#FOAMed has been helpful as always. Salim Rezaie has put together a great post about Seepsis and some of the current practices, along with a podcast and his slides which he used at a recent conference. Click on the copy of the tweet below from @drwillangus.

I am also tweeting like fury about this years Intensive Care State of the Art meeting in December of this year. Its going to be a good one I think and I hope to be well involved on the social media side of things via @ganesh_ICM who is doing a fabulous job of putting things together. Click on the tweet below to see what he is up to, and please retweet if when you see it!
