Thank You Thursday – Neonatal Nurses Association Award6th April 2023
Congratulations to two of our Neonatal Nurses, Maureen O’Dowd and Diane Chalkright on winning the Neonatal Nurses Association Practice Development Award.
Our proud winners received the award for creating regional teaching days for neonatal nurses across NI to standardise care and practice. Working with a trainee doctor they have developed and taught on inter-professional simulation training days. A learning platform, NeoSim, was also created to share educational videos that could be accessed for all neonatal staff, midwives, students, Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners and Allied Health Professionals. This resource shares best practice and supports further learning for regional inter-professional training, provides opportunities for across Trust partnerships and ensures continuity of care for parents and babies as they move across their neonatal journey in NI.
Well done to Maureen and Diane on receiving this recognition of their excellent work and we thank them and our neonatal team for the incredible jobs they do every day.
