CCP Podcast 033: Calling all students….

 September 24

by Jonathan Downham

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.

We are also joined by Neil Withnell (@neilwithnell) is a senior lecturer in mental health nursing and Moira McLoughlin (@levylass) who is a childrens nurse and senior lecturer.

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!
