I’ve just been talking with two of our nurse clinical mentors and asking them about working with the different teams. Given that they were keen right from the offset last night on the idea of the Ward Words team, I knew that they would have had some input into this project specifically.
Sarah (Goodden) and Anne (Kirkham) explained that the team were working on a kind of visual dictionary to help nurses on the wards with English as a second language. They have worked with the team to help them also consider how their project might address/improve social language skills as well. They were even discussing with the team how the application could help with patient language skills also.
All our clinical mentors have thrown themselves into the event and I’ve really enjoyed ear-wigging on so many of these inter-professional conversations that are shaping and refining the projects being built here.
