“Love didn't hurt you – know the signs of domestic abuse” by Caitlin Rivers
Caitlin Rivers is a pseudonym for one of our UEA students who has experience of domestic abuse, but who has come out the other end. Caitlin wishes to share her experience with future healthcare professionals so that they can recognise the signs of domestic abuse and find out a bit more about where people can seek help and support. This book is also aimed at people who are, or think they may be, in an abusive relationship and if so, what to do next.
If you read this book and have any comments on its content, then please get in touch with Dr Susanne Lindqvist firstname.lastname@example.org and your feedback will be forwarded to Caitlin.
New IPL5 module - NEAT: End of life care
In September and October 2016, paramedic diploma and final year adult nursing students worked together in small, interprofessional teams in the NEAT home setting, experiencing a variety of scenarios based on end of life care. The aim was for them to work together effectively to provide excellent care for people near the end of life, involving them, their carers or family in decisions about their care. Actors and tutors helped to provide realistic scenarios, and a service user video was also used.
The students made the most of opportunities to share their own knowledge, skills and experience around end of life care, and they found out about those of their colleagues from the other profession.
Here are some of the comments and feedback from students:
‘Great to work with other healthcare professionals. Shame we couldn’t do more on the course’
‘Very insightful learning’
‘Fantastic session. Would like to have done more of these’
‘Well run, interesting session. Very informative’
‘Very useful to work with paramedics’
‘My 2 nursing colleagues were lovely and professional’
Two more IPL5 NEAT sessions will run in January 2017.
