nurse of the year 2017 | colm darby
I am truly humbled to have been nominated for this award - it is an achievement I never thought I would see in my career. I have always strived to deliver the best quality of care and has always been family centred. As a proud Northern Irish Nurse, I get upset when we we are seen as having the lowest breastfeeding rates in the UK but then I am reminded when you look at the figures and it shows that of those wonderful mothers that start breastfeeding, there is a smaller percentage that stop when compared to the rest of the UK. This shows me that when the NI mums put there minds to it, they mean it! Breast milk is scientifically and naturally best for babies, so I would love to support these mums as best I can. Introducing 40% Glucose Gel into the trust, improved the breastfeeding rates and reduced the neonatal admissions of term infants for hypoglycaemia. It is my aim to roll this initiative across the network over the next year.
I aim to put my award funds toward developing my "quality improvement initiative" in the form of a poster, displaying it in several conferences around the UK. I will also submit abstracts at other International Conferences and use these funds to then disseminate my work to other neonatal units.
With years of experience and connections with various facilities across the UK, we feel we have the backing to offer you some of the BEST RESOURCES in Neonatal care. Take a look at some of these Conferences coming up in 2018.
