barnaclínic+ continues to promote training and research in Nursing at the Hospital Clínic
On 13 May, International Nurses Day was celebrated at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona. During the festivities, in addition to recognition for several members of this group, the Fourth barnaclínic+ Prizes were awarded. One again this year, barnaclínic+ is committed to promoting the training and research activity of nursing professionals at the Hospital Clínic. These prizes, consisting of the Sabàtics Scholarships for training abroad and the Research Intensification Permits, are an initiative of the Department of Nursing at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, with funding from barnaclínic+.
WHAT ARE THE SABÀTICS SCHOLARSHIPS?
The aim of the Sabàtics Scholarships is to improve healthcare by offering nursing professionals at the Hospital Clínic the opportunity to train abroad. Their duration ranges from 3 to 6 months and are awarded to a group of professionals who are selected in accordance with a set of criteria. In 2018, and for the third year running, the Sabàtics Scholarships proved to be a success, which is why barnaclínic+ has once again given them its full backing.
WHO WILL BE AWARDED THE SCHOLARSHIPS?
This year, two professionals from the Hospital Clínic will have the opportunity to train abroad. These are Anna Ballesteros, a Social Educator from the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology Department, who will be travelling to the Institute of Mental Health (University of Nottingham) to conduct her project: “Personal recovery among children and adolescents in mental health services”, and Alba Cano, a nurse from the Cardiology Department, who will be conducting her project “Holistic care nursing consultation for patients with atrial fibrillation” at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (Australia).
WHAT ARE THE INTENSIFICATION PERMITS?
The Intensification Permits are also an initiative of the Nursing Department at the Hospital Clínic funded by barnaclínic+ and, like the Sabàtics Scholarships, they aim to improve healthcare and maintain the excellence of the nursing team. Thanks to these intensification scholarships, the individuals selected will be able to conduct their own research projects and devote their full attention to them.
WHO HAS RECEIVED THE 2019 INTENSIFICATION PERMITS?
In the case of Intensification Permits, this year there will also be two recipients. First, Alonso Pérez, a nurse from the Clinical Institute of Neurosciences, who will be able to conduct his project “Mental health nursing intervention in the management of violent or aggressive behaviour with the aim of reducing unrest and humanising mechanical restraint”, and Montserrat Amigó, from the A&E Department, who has been awarded a scholarship to conduct her research project: “Evaluation of the impact on baseline glycaemia of administering a liquid solution of activated charcoal to patients seen in A&E with acute drug poisoning”.
