FoNS believes that all patients should experience care that is high quality and patient-focused. Whilst the responsibility for continuously improving the quality of care lies with all healthcare professionals, nurses as direct care givers have a key role in leading and facilitating change.
In FoNS’ experience, identifying, understanding and responding to practice problems can be challenging and complex. Our programmes are therefore designed to inspire and help nurses and other health and social care professionals to work through such complexities by:
- Supporting and developing practitioners
- Listening to the voices of service users
- Utilising a wide range of evidence (including research, practice experience, service users’ experience)
- Integrating critical reflection and evaluation into practice
- Using systematic approaches to development and research
- Developing facilitation skills and an enabling approach
FoNS has a range of programmes designed to support nurses and other health and social care professionals to develop the skills and expertise to enable safe, caring and effective patient care. To find out more, follow the links below:
