Rethinking Safe Staffing with Modern Nursing Labour

The first International Health and Social Care Workforce Seminar Series event of 2021 will take place virtually, via Zoom, on Wednesday 24 February, from 3.00pm to 4.15pm.

Our guest speaker is – Dr Jennifer Jackson – Assistant Professor of Nursing from the University of Calgary, Canada. 

As always, this event is free, but if you would like to attend please e-mail to book a place. 

Nursing work is often misunderstood, which has implications for staffing and patient safety. In this seminar Jennifer will present her research into nursing labour and its implications for staffing, carried out in the UK National Health Service (NHS) and will discuss how her findings apply internationally. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion after the presentation.

Jennifer graduated with a BScN Honours from St. Francis Xavier University and earned her PhD in Nursing Research at the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care at King’s College London. She created the first livetweets of nursing work, and has spearheaded the development of Resilience Challenge, a video game to translate ideas about organisational resilience to healthcare providers. Her presentations and tutorials are available on YouTube.
