Stroke in Childhood 2017
A nationally developed evidence-based clinical guideline for all UK paediatricians and healthcare professionals involved in the regulation or practice of the care of children and young people who have had or are suspected of having a stroke. Funded by the Stroke Association, the clinical guideline was prepared by the Royal College of Paediatric and Child Health’s multi-professional Stroke in Childhood Guideline Development Group. It is accompanied by a parent guideline, which aims to ensure that families understand what a stroke is, why they occur, and how children and young people affected by stroke should be treated and cared for.
Mental capacity workshops
These workshops in Northern Ireland are aimed at all RCN members who are registered nurses, student nurses and health care assistants, regardless of speciality. They will be useful for those who work outside of mental health or learning disability services, as well as those staff who work with legislation on a regular basis, and will help participants to understand their professional and legal roles and responsibilities in terms of the new Mental Capacity Act 2016. They run until 31 August in Belfast.
