An “online hub” to help nurses deliver the Six C’s has been launched by NHS England.
The Six C’s, which promote a focus on care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment, form the basis of the new website.
Examples of how nursing colleagues have implemented the Six C’s, as well as tools and techniques that delivered improvements are available on the website, called 6Cs Live.
Juliet Beal director of Nursing at NHS England said: “6Cs communications hub is designed to spread good practice and supports nurses, midwives and care staff with the right tools to improve the quality of care.
“Nurses, midwives and care staff can sign up for regular updates and webinars and also get involved by taking part in the online network to link up with colleagues right across the country to share examples of compassionate care and good practice – as well as talk about their achievements.”
Nurses are being urged to sign up to create a profile and share their experiences.
Sir David Nicholson, chief executive of NHS England said: “This provides an excellent opportunity for nursing staff to continue to develop and improve the quality of care and a positive patient experience in a way that hasn’t been available before.
“Despite the challenges we face we should embrace the potential possibilities for nurses, midwives and carers that this fantastic resource opens up.”
