Nurse Prescribing for Pain in London – 29th September 2017

Nurse Prescribing for Pain
Friday 29 September 2017
De Vere W1 Conference Centre, London.

This important national conference provides an essential update for current and aspiring nurse prescribers on prescribing for pain. Pain is a growing area of nurse prescribing and one of the most common areas, in a survey of the Association for Prescribers members 50% of members prescribed for pain (Karen Stenner, University of Surrey). This make it essential that nurse prescribers maintain the competence and skills to prescribe for pain in an effective way, working with patients to improve pain outcomes.

The Eve Appeal – Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month

On Thursday 1st September, The Eve Appeal is launching Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month (GCAM) to raise awareness of all five gynaecological cancers throughout the month (and beyond!). They will be encouraging women across the UK to #KnowYourBody and to be aware of the signs and symptoms of the five gynaecological cancers.

The charity knows that stigma, taboo and embarrassment are key barriers to women talking openly about signs and symptoms and seeking medical help. They also know that awareness of the gynae cancers themselves is very low. However, The Eve Appeal is determined to change this and make gynae cancers as easy to talk about without shame or embarrassment as breast cancer. 

That is why this September, Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month will focus on the concept of #KnowYourBody, which demonstrates the gynaecological knowledge gap among women of the UK about their own anatomy, gynae issues as well as cancers and their associated signs and symptoms. 

To find out more about The Eve Appeal’s activity throughout September, please visit www.eveappeal.org.uk/gcam

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust Volunteers

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust are currently looking for volunteers to help run their growing helpline, and we are especially interested in hearing from health care professionals who have experience and knowledge of cervical cancer or cervical abnormalities.

The Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust helpline offers reliable information, friendly support and useful signposting to women, and their loved ones affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities. So far this year our helpline volunteers have helped over 600 people feel better informed, less isolated, and  more supported in their situations.

Our helpline advisors volunteer remotely from their own homes, and commit to a 3 hour shift twice a month.  The charity provides all of the helpline skills training, information, and support to succeed in this role. You will be joining a fantastic and supportive network of valued volunteers who really make a difference to women and their loved ones.

Ask Eve

PrintAsk Eve is a new and unique information service from the UK’s gynaecological cancer charity, The Eve Appeal, which will offer nurse-led, specialist, evidence based advice and information to the general public who are either experiencing or are concerned about developing symptoms associated with gynaecological cancer as well as offering up-to-date information for health professionals.

It has been designed with the needs of women affected or worried about these cancers at its core and will be based around a confidential phone and email service and information provision through social media channels such as Twitter and an online health community – Health Unlocked. The phone and email service will offer the opportunity for users to have direct access with The Eve Appeal’s specialist gynaecological cancer nurse, Tracie Miles, who will be able to provide information and support on all five gynaecological cancers, and help women to ask and discuss questions about signs and symptoms, risk factors and related issues such as genetic testing.

In addition to this direct contact woman, their families and health care providers can access tailored specialist information provided in an accessible, easy-to-understand way through The Eve Appeal information pages as well as across social media channels.

I was rather overwhelmed when I was invited to speak at the above conference.  Anyway my husband and I decided to go and make a bit of a holiday of it and leave our rather disgruntled teenagers home alone as they are both in the 6th form.  I can’t tell you how friendly the Australians were and the conference was very well organised.  Melbourne is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city and we managed to do some site seeing during our visit too.
