Care City Weekly
We have included our latest articles and essays from our website, a couple of curated content and gist on what's happening in Care City
Hello there to our wonderful readers.
“Thank God It’s Friday.”
How are you going to spend your weekend?
Are you working weekend shifts? Or are you lucky to have the weekend off?
If you have the weekend off, good for you. Take this time out to rest and get ready for the next week coming. Make sure you pamper yourself and chill. You deserve it.
And to the other folks, who are working the weekend. Well, enjoy the “workend.” *Hehehe*.
This will be our first newsletter from our Substack [you know, we just launched this Substack publication some days back].
Why did we start a Substack?
The major reason — is so that our readers can enjoy reading our articles, essays, and blog posts on a more relaxing and beautiful interface.
Substack makes reading fun and sweet. It’s a whole different experience.
In this newsletter, we have included the latest articles and posts from our website. We have also included some curated content [what we have been reading and would love you to also read].
We will also talk a bit about what we have been up to at Carecode Digital Health Hub.
It’s not going to be much [for now]. We promise to keep it short, simple, and sweet.
Celebrating Nurses’ Week | Reimagining Nursing Leadership: The Concept of Community-styled Leadership
We started writing a series of articles to celebrate Nurses’ Week. This is the second part. You can read the first one here which talked about “Re-positioning In A Digitally Driven World.”
As we grow and develop as a professional community, the leadership style that we practiced many years back also needs to evolve with our growth.
It needs to change. We need to adapt so that we remain relevant in this fast-paced, digitally driven world.
At Care City, we love to mix things up. This article was written by a Medical Laboratory Scientist. We wanted to enjoy another perspective. It explores briefly how digital technologies have influenced biomedical practices.
It also explores how digital technologies will be used in the field of Medical Laboratory Science.
Recently, Aghedo Princewill won a global award. If you are a nurse in Nigeria, then you should know who he is.
He was the winner of the International Nurses Day 2022, Nursing Now Challenge Award for Advocacy & Communication.
We celebrated him on Care City, acknowledging his contribution to the development of the nursing profession in Nigeria and Africa.
What We Are Reading
Jennifer Ball, director of virtual care at Saint Luke’s Health System of Kansas City talks about Virtual Nursing [you can also call it Telenursing].
There are many benefits to a virtual nursing team supporting the bedside unit. For nursing, it centers around satisfaction and retention, as the virtual staff handle all the non-hands-on care and workflows. This allows the bedside team to respond to physical patient needs faster and reduce their workload. They have more time with the patient when they are in the room…
Nurses make the biggest contribution. No doubt about it. They have the numbers and the heart.
Guess who comes behind?
NHS Digital’s director of research and clinical trials, Michael Chapman, looks at the organisation’s development of a trusted research environment (TRE) in the NHS. He is joined by Health Data Research UK’s Susheel Varma who explains the benefits of using TREs for data sharing and Professor Angela Wood and Dr Will Whiteley of consortium CVD-COVID-UK to discuss how the new environment is working for them on the front line of clinical research.
