Eleven projects to receive financial support

Eleven new projects will benefit from financial and institutional support from Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI).

Throughout 2015, the charity's Fund for Innovation and Leadership will provide individual projects with up to £5,000 in direct financial support.

The fund is is a partnership between the QNI and the Burdett Trust for Nursing and will finance a range of services. These include care plan provsisions for the over 75s, diabetes education programmes and a programme that helps those with learning disabilities to access bowel screening facilities. 

Project leaders will also benefit from support from the QNI, which involves regular group workshops and site visits, to help set and guide project goals and outcomes, and enable effective reporting to commissioners, managers and other stakeholders.

Anne Pearson, Director of Programmes at the QNI said: "We are delighted to be working with this new group of project leaders to deliver some exciting and innovative clinical projects in the commmunity. These projects will help to improve patient care, and will also contribute to nursing practice more widely, and the development of new clinical leaders.

"This year's projects represent an incredibly challenging and diverse group, which reflects the range of vital work that community."
