Chief Nurse At London Trust Aims For Zero Vacancies In 2020

The chief nurse of a trust where Florence Nightingale set up her first nursing school has said she wants to use this “important” year to achieve zero nursing vacancies and raise the status of the profession worldwide.

Dame Eileen Sills from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust has told how she would like to build on the reputation of the trust “as the place to go to be a nurse” during the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

This week the trust held a launch event at St Thomas’ Hospital to kick-start celebrations for 2020, which coincides with the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

Speaking at the event, Dame Eileen told her nursing colleagues that this year was about “remembering the legacy” that Florence gave the profession.

She said that the hospital had a “special place within nursing” because Florence’s first school started up there in 1860.

“I think what 2020 is about, is us remembering the legacy that Florence Nightingale gave us, where we have come from and celebrating our future,” said Dame Eileen.

She added: “I think if we lose the importance of our past then we will be poorer in the future.

“So, this year is about having a bit of fun, appreciating our legacy [and] participating in a whole raft of initiatives.”

Dame Eileen, who has been nursing for 40 years this year, encouraged her colleagues to use the time over the next year to “understand the value we make, not just to Guy’s and St Thomas’, but the value to the NHS as a whole”.

“We’re a force to be reckoned with,” she added.

“The World Health Organisation has made this the International Year of the Nurse and all of a sudden I think most importantly the world has woken up that you can’t do without us.”

In an interview with Nursing Times after her speech, Dame Eileen was asked what she would like to achieve for the trust during this significant year.

She said: “We would like to build our reputation further as the place to go to be a nurse.

“I’d like to have no vacancies by the end of the year.”

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust currently has 679 whole time equivalent registered nurse vacancies, which is 12% of its total nursing workforce.

“I want nurses to basically say…that it’s the best place to work. Our profile in the organisation is very high anyway and I think this will just sort of cement it,” she added.

Dame Eileen highlighted that the year of 2020 should be used to “raise the status of nursing worldwide”.

“I think we have good status in this country, but worldwide that’s not always the case,” she said.

“Across the world we want everybody to understand and realise the contribution that nursing can make, which is pretty considerable, and it not be defined by the country that you are in.”

To celebrate year of the nurse, the trust has implemented a theme for each month during 2020 which includes a focus on leadership, education, community services and infection control (see full list below).

The trust will also be holding its annual nursing and midwifery awards in May and has plans for two new installations at the hospital, though Dame Eileen could not reveal what they would be.

In addition, the trust has a competition planned with a primary school to “design the future nursing uniform”. Dame Eileen said the winner would then be given the chance to create the uniform.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust’s themes for the year:

January: Celebrations begin

February: Past, present and future

March: Education and training

April: Reaching your potential

May: Celebrating our professions

June: Advanced practice and research

July: Infection control

August: Leadership development

September: Community services

October: International heritage

November: Strategy and smiles

December: Florence Nightingale’s legacy

Why I dumped Nursing For Politics – Abiodun Essiet

Abiodun Essiet, a gender advocate, women leader of Nigeria Women Trust Fund (NWTF) and public health consultant, is the special adviser (SA) to the Chairman, Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) Hon. Abdullahi Candido, on ICT, donor agencies, and civil societies. In this interview with ENE OSANG, she speaks on how she joined politics, her experience among others.

What is your background and did it influence you joining politics?

I am a registered nurse. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Nursing Science and a Masters in Public Health. I also hold a Diploma in Development Leadership and certificate in Community Development Leadership by Women, Conflict, and Peace-building, Action Research for Citizens-led Change from Coady International Institute, Nova Scotia, Canada.

I am a passionate community leader with seven years of experience in project management, community development and leadership. I am also involved in identifying development gaps in society and ways of bridging the gaps.

In 2018, I participated in the canvassing pan African youth democracy programme and I am working on a six-month project in my community on public service efficiency by engaging elected representatives to become more accountable, efficient and to deliver impactful governance to citizens.

Currently, I am the National Director for Women, Gender and Development Affairs of Africa Youth Union Commission, as well as the Executive Director of Abiodun Essiet initiative for girls, a Non Governmental Organizations (NGO) dealing with youth and women empowerment, Board Member and Health Consultant For Strong Enough Girls Empowerment Initiative and a volunteer for Baobab for Women’s rights.

I am actively engaged in public service, volunteerism and mentoring, and I started the “35% Inclusion Movements”, a grassroots movement aimed at reaching 35 per cent inclusion of women in decision making positions towards 2019 Nigeria general election.

I created a social media network known as the Young Africa Women leaders Network to Mentor young women across Africa on politics and leadership development, a platform I use to share my political journal as an aspirant in the general election in Nigeria.

Your background is in the healthcare sector, why did you move to politics?

I practiced nursing for some years and later moved into the civil society which launched me into an activism program. I became an advocate for gender equality and good governance.

My work in civil society got me involved in women’s empowerment programmes that really opened my eyes to the issues women are facing across the various sectors of life and development. The activist in me was not okay with the status quo. I felt something has to be done especially concerning the marginalization of women in governance.

This led to starting a grassroots movement called ‘35% Inclusion Movement, to advocate for 35% inclusion of women in leadership at both the public and private sectors, which was in line with international declarations and treaties like CEDAW, and Beijing platform for action 1995.

In the year 2016, I decided to practice what I preached by fully getting involved in politics by registering in a political party.

I see politics as an important tool for getting into governance. For so long we have left some specific kind of people who are not really interested in developing this nation in politics to shape our governance system which I was not happy about. I felt we needed a new crop of people who are transformational leaders, interested in developing this nation in politics.

My parents are politician, so at the early stage of my life I started participating in party politics passively but I became a partisan politician in 2016.

As an undergraduate and also in the postgraduate, I contested for different positions in our departmental association.

So, what has the experience been as SA to AMAC chairman?

Well, I contested in the last general elections as counsellor for my ward, Orozo Ward, which is one of the 12 wards that constitute AMAC.

I contested against five men and lost at the primary election. Although I didn’t like how everything turned out during my primary elections, I continued working for the party.

I was made the campaign secretary for my ward for the campaign team of APC, where I worked with other members of the party to canvas for votes for our candidates at the general election.

I also joined the APC FCT Women Leader, Hon. Hail Mary Aipob, campaign structure, where we formed a new campaign team called Women and Youth for Buhari. We went around the FCT with the minister to canvas for votes.

The AMAC chairman, Hon. Abdullahi Adamu Candido, noticed my commitment to the party and my community development work and he requested that I should join his team to serve the people.

I joined the team in May 2019 and my seven months in office has been interesting and challenging. Coming from a civil society background some of the civil servants found my zeal to make a change strange because they are used to having things done in a particular.

So, I spent 1st month in office to understand the system and to draft my agenda. In my one month in office, I was able to revive the ICT unit and I updated our social media pages. I registered AMAC as a member of world smart cities and local governments. I also created a structure to manage the affairs of civil societies in AMAC.

The first few months of resumption of the administration were used to set the agenda. Interactive meetings were held with the staff of the ICT division, the information division of the council and the social welfare unit of the council. Assessment of the website, social media platforms of the council was carried out by the team; information gathered was used to initiate the process for updating the website of the council with the website developer.

We also had engagement with relevant donors and civil societies. The team paid a courtesy visit to various national and international organizations.

We now have a very active social media handles. We are currently updating our website. In this process, my team is working on securing the website, activating links to the various departments and we also working on creating a newsfeed section on the website.

I led AMAC delegation on a governance impact learning visit to Kigali, Rwanda, and Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The governance impact learning visit is a program designed to expose young political leaders to global standards of governance and provide them with a peer support space for ideating on how to cascade such learning experiences for governance impact in their local political leadership and sphere of influence. Participants spent six days visiting relevant government agencies and institutions in Rwanda and UAE.

What informed the choice Rwanda and Dubai?

Rwanda is ranked as the second easiest place to do business in Africa and also ranks higher than Nigeria in the global competitiveness index by the World Bank.

While Dubai which was an emerging state in the early ’80s has become one of the world’s leading tourist and investment destinations within a space of three decades, and Nigeria with far more resources than both countries lags behind. Both countries have substantially improved vital sectors such as education, health, transportation, and tourism, which have significantly enhanced the impact of government on the lives of the citizenry.

Rwanda and Dubai also have a relatively flexible visa policy and low travel costs.

I ensured development partners meeting with the council chairman whereby 21 partners attended the meeting with the cabinet members of the council.

The meeting was organized to provide a coordinating platform for the council to know the donors and NGO’s working on various projects within the municipal area and to create an opportunity for development partners to share their projects and action plans.

At the meeting, the chairman recognized that the government cannot do everything; partnership globally can assist the government. Interventions through organizations will ensure services reach consumers and promote the development of a more united and prosperous Area Council; through encouraging brotherhood between Indigenes and other Nigerians to appreciate stronger ties and partnership. The meeting was also to strengthen existing infrastructure and we harped the need for AMAC microfinance banks to support economic empowerment among the less income AMAC residents.

Also, the need for sustainable agriculture development, promoting the achievement of basic health care provision across all our Primary Health Care Centres; partnership for e-governance service delivery in the council; exchange programmes with other councils across the globe and an all-inclusive government that encourages women to contribute their quota to development at all levels was stressed.

You joined AMAC seven months ago but was awarded the most efficient staff in 2019, how did this make you feel council?

I feel excited and proud of my achievement. I promised myself to perform my duties with excellence. Knowing that women hardly occupy the position I occupy at all levels of government I wanted to make women proud and also for the men to find it worthy to always put women in positions of authority. My success is dedicated to women in governance.

My achievements rebranded AMAC on social media, built the capacity of staff on ICT. I ensured AMAC was registered with Wego Facilitator, AMAC partners and ICT investor.

I established a structure for creating a gender unit and gender policy in AMAC to sensitise staff on gender-based violence at the workplace.

I promoted working relationship of AMAC with developmental partners by setting first-ever Round-table discussion on development with the AMAC chairman. I also facilitated several projects/programmes for AMAC from NGOs and donor agencies.

Before I came to office, men had been occupying this position for a long time and none of them could do half of what I did in seven months. I am happy I have a HeforShe as chairman. He appreciates good work and awarded me the overall best cabinet member in AMAC for 2019.

What is your vision for AMAC?

My vision for AMAC is for the council to be the best local government in Nigeria, setting the pace for others to follow. I look forward to an inclusive council with the agenda of bringing dividends of democracy to citizens.

Also, I envision a council that supports citizen’s involvement in governance, promoting open governance and transparency.

In line with my office, I want AMAC to be the best council that promotes enabling environment for none governmental organisations to engage with the council

What advice will you give young women who are facing challenges in politics?

I will encourage them to be bold, calm and collected. Learn about politics before getting into it. Have a mentor within the party structure.

They should know their constituency very well and relate well with members of their constituency as well as community leaders.

Their success in politics also depends on money, every month I set aside 20 per cent of my salary to give welfare to people in my community.

So, what will you say to Nigerians in general?

To all Nigeria, good governance depends on our day to day actions and not just on the actions of few people elected to manage the affairs of government.

Get involved in governance; let your voice be heard. Change begins with us.

To women, take the steps. We are often limited by so many factors that directly or indirectly affect our lives. Believe in your dreams and take the necessary steps towards actualising those dreams, the world will not fall apart without you.

Shearwater Recruitment Agency Appoints New CEO to Address Nursing Shortage In US

The global shortage of nurses and other clinicians continues to pressure healthcare organizations in need of clinical talent. In the United States, the Department of Labor has warned of the nursing shortage for years. On a global level, the nursing shortage has become so important that the World Health Organization (WHO) has named 2020 the year of the nurse and midwife in order to focus awareness on the vital role nurses play worldwide.

Shearwater Health works with some of the largest health systems and health plans in the U.S. to expand the size and impact of their nursing teams. In a climate that makes it tough to retain nurses, Shearwater has hired and retained over 3,000 global clinicians solving medical and administrative problems every hour of every day.

Dedicated teams of nurses and other clinicians work remotely from three Shearwater operation centers in the Philippines as well as onsite at hospitals and other healthcare organizations in the U.S. Bedside nurses working onsite come from countries all over the world including the Philippines, Jamaica, Kenya, Nigeria, and India.

To support Shearwater’s rapid growth and ensure it meets client demand, Tom Kendrot has been promoted to CEO. Former CEO, David Bartholomew, will continue his involvement in the Company through his role as Executive Chairman. Kendrot formerly served as President & COO and has helped lead Shearwater to its current success since being hired in 2012.

“I am honored to lead Shearwater Health. Nurses and other clinicians are essential to the healthcare industry. Even with many exciting advancements in automation technology, we can never replace the value of human clinical intervention to create the best patient experience,” says Kendrot. “Our clients see the value of clinical expertise, ranging from bedside to coaching to administrative clinical duties, as crucial to driving quality patient outcomes. Shearwater is uniquely positioned to provide that expertise remotely and onsite with clients.”

“We are delighted to have Tom as CEO,” said Oliver Moses, Managing Partner of WindRose Health Investors. “Tom is the right person to lead this company, as he has provided outstanding leadership in multiple roles over the last eight years. We are excited to see him continue the growth of the company.”

Along with Kendrot taking the helm, the Company welcomed a strategic investment from Nashville-based Heritage Group at the end of 2019. Heritage Group’s extensive experience and deep healthcare relationships will provide tremendous support to the company as it further solidifies its position as a leading provider of global outsourced clinical solutions to U.S. healthcare organizations.

“Shearwater provides a valuable source of relief from the nursing shortage for organizations across the healthcare ecosystem, and we are eager to help accelerate growth for the company,” says Heritage Group Principal, Graham Hunter, who will join Shearwater’s board.

Because Shearwater is involved with nurses in many different countries, it sees an opportunity to promote the nursing profession internationally to advance its mission of improving healthcare outcomes globally. “Our presence in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, along with the relationships we have with nurses and nursing leaders internationally, puts us at the center of global nursing,” says Kendrot. “We are committed to capitalizing on our access and experience to help sustain the nursing profession in its tireless efforts to serve patients everywhere.”

This is seen in Shearwater’s partnerships with Asian Hospital in Manila, Philippines, investments in the National Nurses Association of Kenya, the faculty of the University of Nairobi School of nursing, and the city of Kingston, Jamaica, along with ongoing support of organizations like Project C.U.R.E.

With its expertise in providing nursing and other clinical programs from the Philippines and the U.S. and its growing impact on nursing around the world, Shearwater deepens its commitment to helping organizations utilize the nursing resources it needs to effectively care for patients in 2020 and the years to come.

Florence Nightingale And The Changing Face Of Nursing By Slavea Chankova

The “Year of the Nurse” will highlight the potential—and the problems—awaiting future Nightingales

THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION has designated 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse”, marking 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale, who established the principles of modern nursing and hospital sanitation. If she were to drop in on a hospital today, Nightingale would be pleased to see the progress in nursing since her day—and how it is poised to change in the years to come.

Nightingale founded the first nursing school, at a hospital in London in 1860, and wrote some 200 books and papers. She was the first woman admitted to the Royal Statistical Society, for her pioneering work in statistical infographics. While tending to British soldiers in the Crimean war, she made the case for hospital sanitation using a variation of the pie chart, entitled “Diagram of the Causes of Mortality in the Army in the East”, to show that more soldiers died from infections than from injuries. She drew up the chart to “affect through the Eyes what we may fail to convey to the brains of the public through their word-proof ears”. In what became known as a Coxcomb diagram, each slice of the pie has the same angular width and an area representing the amount in a given category (such as number of dead men).

Many, if not most, people today think of nursing as a narrow set of skills learned on the ward, much like it was back in Nightingale’s time. In fact, nurses have university degrees and there are doctorate-level studies in nursing. Like doctors, nurses specialise in myriad clinical disciplines, such as neonatology, cardiology and Accident & Emergency. There are even forensic nurses. Such is the pace of innovation in nursing that some issues of American Nurse Today, a monthly journal, run north of 70 pages.

In 2020 and beyond nurses will be doing a growing number of tasks conventionally reserved for doctors, both in acute and chronic care. Already, nearly two-thirds of anaesthetics given to patients in America are administered by certified nurse anaesthetists. In Britain specialised nurses now perform some types of abdominal, orthopaedic and cardiac surgery. In parts of sub-Saharan Africa nurses are being trained to do emergency caesarean sections, with results comparable to those achieved by doctors.

The changing face of nursing

Nurses will be increasingly tapped to replace general practitioners in treating patients with diabetes and other chronic conditions that require lifestyle changes. Nurses are particularly well placed to provide this kind of holistic care, which takes into account each person’s life circumstances, because they have long been patients’ confidants. In the words of Brian Dolan, an academic, “people look up to a doctor, but they look a nurse in the eye.” In surveys about trust in people from various professions, nurses invariably come top.

What would disappoint Nightingale in her time-travel to the present is that the transformation of nursing has been uneven. In countries as varied as India, Germany and Portugal nurses are still largely treated as doctors’ minions and may not even diagnose common ailments or prescribe medication. And although nurses make up nearly half of the world’s health-care workforce—and 90% of patients’ contacts with health workers—they are often not at the table when health-policy decisions are made. Even the World Health Organisation did not have a chief nursing officer until 2018.

The other trend that would make Nightingale furrow her brow is that nursing has lost its lustre, so most posts are hard to fill. In many countries no profession has a higher number of vacancies. In the next decade the shortage of nurses will remain the biggest problem that national health systems all over the world will face. By 2030 the world will be short of 7.6m nurses, which is a third of their number today.

To turn this tide, efforts to draw more people into nursing and keep trained nurses from leaving the profession will accelerate. Countries will focus more on recruiting nurses locally, rather than luring them from abroad—often from poor places where health care is already crippled by nurse shortages. National media campaigns will aim to raise the profile of nursing by dispelling outdated views about what the job entails. Some may borrow ideas from Singapore’s highly effective campaign, which has commissioned nursing dramas, documentaries and even a “nursing anthem” (in the form of a catchy pop-music video). The campaign’s Instagram account has something for everyone, including love stories of couples who met in nursing school.

Prodded by a global campaign which began in 2018, more hospitals and other employers will set up professional-development and leadership programmes for nurses. There will be more talk—and, it is hoped, action too—about how to enable nurses to work at the top of their licence and abilities. Technology will be roped in to make their work more manageable and reduce burnout. Algorithms, for example, will be used to map the optimal routes for ward shifts.

At the same time, as diagnostic systems and surgical robots advance, nursing may be the only aspect of the health-care profession in which machines will not replace human beings. Even though nursing is shaped by medical science and technology, as it has been since Nightingale’s time, its healing powers remain rooted in empathy and a human touch.
