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 practice based development and research programmes are therefore designed to inspire and help nurse-led teams to work through such complexities by:
- Supporting and developing practitioners
- Listening to the voices of service users
- Creating networking opportunities to learn with and from others
- 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
FoNS knows skilled facilitation is central to enabling others to lead change and achieve excellence in practice and so our programmes offer both bursaries and expertise in facilitating practice development and change.
FoNS is currently supporting three programmes. To find out more, click on the links below:
