    Nursing to empower young people affected by knife crime

    Nursing to empower young people affected by knife crime

    How do you engage disaffected young people who are at risk of serious harm? What can you do as a nurse in these circumstances?
    Emergency nurse Ana Waddington felt a sense of helplessness at the increasing number of young people presenting with knife injuries in hospitals. So she decided to act.
    Ana used her own time and money to set up YourStance, which teaches young people at risk of serious youth violence cardiopulmonary resuscitation, basic life support and haemorrhage control.
    In this episode she tells senior news reporter Kimberley Hackett how she builds rapport and trust with these communities – and how she is also inspiring some of these young people to join the NHS.
    In 2020, Ana was named RCN Nurse of the Year for her extraordinary project, which is now gaining interest across the UK.
    The RCN Nursing Awards are now open for entries. To take part, visit www.rcn-nursing-awards.co.uk
